Legato is a pattern of knitted accessories which includes a cowl, a pair of fingerless mittens with matching boot-toppers and leg-warmers in an easy alternating rib pattern.
The cowl, leg-warmers and boot toppers are suitable for a first project in circular knitting but the fingerless mittens require a little experience including increases and picking up stitches.
The suggested yarn is Elann's Pippilongcolours but any Aran weight yarn that knits to the required tension will work fine. The outer lines of the rib continue in smooth waving lines throughout the knitting. When knitted in a colour changing yarn such as Elann’s Pippilongcolors, the colours and pattern change smoothly without breaks between the lines and tones. Just as in Legato music.
The fingerless mittens and a pair of boot toppers take only two balls of the suggested yarn and knit up quickly. Great for gift knitting.
