Waist Knit, Want Knit

eyelet waistband

The final touches to the leggings was a simple K2 P2 ribbing.

I cheated and went down a needle size or two to make the ribbing a bit more sturdy.

Then I placed eyelet holes just in case she needs an elastic cord or an i-cord. I think the fit is pretty good without it but this is made out of sugar cane and may tend to sag over time.

Finally I casted off loosely following the K2 P2 ribbing and it came out fair. For the next pair I’ll try one of the sewn cast offs described in the Appendix of the EZ’s Knitter’s Almanac.

In total I used just 3 skeins of Araucania Ruca Multi.

Fear not, there were some yarnleftovers that I’ll put to use on a future pair of leggings.

I think I could get away with just two skeins if I made leggings that started at the knee. Young girl who loves leggings wears this shorter style even in the summertime.
