Time To Cast On!

Are you ready? It’s time to cast on your Rebecca Legwarmers. Don’t forget to link your project to the pattern page on Ravelry.

Here’s what we are aiming for:

Rebecca cuff

Remember to use whatever colours you’d like, however to make things easier I will be referring to the colours as used in the photos.

Using 4mm needles and blue, CO 44 stitches, join to knit in the round (place a marker to denote the end of the round).

Work double rib (K2, P2) for 15 rows.

Change to 4.5mm needles and knit one row blue. Change colour to green.

Round 1: *k2tog, k3, (k1, p1, k1) into next stitch, k3, ssk*; repeat from * to *

Round 2: knit

Round 3 & 4: repeat rounds 1 & 2

Round 5: repeat round 1

Change colour to blue.

Round 6: knit

Round 7 – 10: purl.

Change colour to green.

Knit 1 round green. Then repeat rounds 1 – 5.

Change colour to blue.

Knit 1 round.

Purl 2 rounds.

Knit 1 round increasing 8 stitches evenly (52 sts).

I’ll meet you back here in a few days for the next section.
