Rebecca Flowers

Make 4  3-stitch I-cords, each a different colour, each a different length (they need to be long enough to go around your leg and have extra length for tying and threading through the flowers).

(don’t know how to knit an I-cord? Check out this link)

Thread 2 cords through the holes you made in the purple round at the top of each legwarmer. Alternate the cords (see pictures).

Rebecca back

Make a crochet or knitted flower to go on the end of each I-cord. (there are plenty to choose from on this website .  I didn’t follow a pattern but did something like this:

chain about 8-10 & join in a circle, double crochet into the circle (about 10-12), 3 or 4 triple crochet into each space (the more stitches here, the more ruffled it will be)

My flowers had a hole in the centre that let me thread the I-cord though and simply knotted it. To stop the flower moving along the cord I stitched it into place.

Commence Rainbow Zigzag:

Round 1 : *k9, slip 2 tog, k1, pass slipped stitch over * repeat till end of round

Round 2: *k1, p4, (k1, yo, k1) in next stitch, p4* repeat till end of round

Repeat these last 2 rounds with each colour (red, pink, purple, yellow, blue, orange, bright purple, green, dark pink)

Using red & purple work vertical zigzags from chart:
