Holiday Swirl Legwarmers

I totally had to jump on the swirl knitting bandwagon!  I mean how could you not, the results are just so completely delicious!

I made a swirly candy corn hat a while back, and loved it so much, swirls have been swirling in my design space since then.

Skills Used

Materials

KFB = Knit front and back – this is a very easy increase, where you turn one stitch into two ( necessary for making a bauble shape ).  Knit the next stitch on the left-hand needle, without slipping off the old stitch.  Proceed to knit into the back of that same stitch, and complete the stitch as usual  (KFB)

K2tog = Knit two together – a very simple decrease, where you turn two stitches into one.  Insert your right-hand needle into the next two stitches on your left-hand needle, and knit them both together. (K2tog)

P2tog = Purl two together – a very simple decrease, where you turn two stitches into one.  Insert your right-hand needle into the next two stitches on your left-hand needle, as if to purl, and purl them both together. (P2tog)
