Kalamata Knee Highs
The Kalamata Knee Highs are worked top-down starting with a ribbed edge, followed by a lovely lace-patterned cuff. The calf is worked in a repetitive stripe-pattern, using 3 colors. ( No need to break yarn between the stripes - therefor very little weaving in at the end:) Decreases are made at regular distances from upper to lower calf - which gives a lovely fitted knee high. Heel is constructed with a heel flap and picked up stitches. Foot is worked with narrower stripes to add more interest. The shaping of the toe is made with decreases in the sides for extra comfort. I give you a chart for the lace and stripe-pattern 1 and 2 as well as a fully written instruction to guide you from top to toe. Upper calf will measure 30/32/34.5cm = 11.8/12.5/13.6”. Lower calf will measure 22/23.5/25cm = 8.6/9.2/10”. **Uses 3 shades of 4 ply yarn.
