Has anyone seen a pattern for knitted tights?
I'd like something a lot warmer and smaller gauge than these.
What about queerjoe's pattern?
These were discussed here at some point. I have a picture of the short version, and there may be one on Joe's site or here.
There's a pattern here: http://www.theretroknittingcompany.co.uk/underwearmens.html
And I'm told Zimmerman's Knitter's Almanac has a pattern.
I'd forgotten about Joe's pattern...will have to check that out...
I have the Zimmerman pattern.
Those tights look plenty warm to me from where I'm sitting.
Willy...YOU would look wonderful in those tights!!!
You want smaller gauge??
Oh, you mean the knitting.... sorry!
Here is a drops pattern for leggings. http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/us/pattern.php?id=3396&lang=us
The pattern itself is for a female, but it is from the top down and comes in a range of sizes, so you could try on as you go and add/remove shaping where necessary. The pattern recommends using a sport and fingering yarn held together, but I would expect a single strand of worsted would do just as well. Good luck!
I think those could be adapted...
I know Elizabeth Z has a chapter on 'nether garments' in the knitter's almanac. They'd never seemed to have any appeal...but there does seem to be some potential....
Forget the tights. How do I knit that man?!
Bill, you're a hoot.
How did you get my picture, Bill? LOL
...it's all over the internet, Mark!
