Women's tights knitting pattern
Hi,

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas .

It's a white Christmastime here and freezing cold. This reminded me that I used to have a pattern for women's tights that got lost few years ago. It was in a knitting magazine.

Well, I've been searching the net for another pattern and cannot even find anything close except for leg warmers which I have several pairs of. Thing is, I would like to wear a dress but the bottom part would be missing (cold tushy) while legs would be still warm. So, I am asking if anyone has or knows someone who has or can spread the word that the search is on for women's tights knitting patterns. Or at least one. If you have one please let me know or direct me to where I can buy or download one or ... something... lol

Thanks!

Hi. Guess what I came across just now? Women and Girl's 1960s Vintage Knitted Tights -- Hose -- PDF KNITTING PATTERN and at Ravelry too. As I was knitting socks I was thinking of how they used to hand knit socks, stockings, tights, etc. I'd wondered if there were tights patterns out there. I guess so.

Happy New Year! You're welcome.
If you join www.ravelry.com you can search for more patterns, I was just looking at tights patterns myself. You got me interested in looking if not actually knitting them.

Check this link. There are other things mixed in but there are a few tights patterns. I think some have feet. If you've knit socks adding feet shouldn't be a problem. I hope we get to see what you make. If I make some, I promise that if I post a photo I won't be in them. Well, maybe my feet and legs.
