Knitted tights?

Bill's picture

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?

http://queerjoe.com/patterns/Man_s_Underpants_Pattern.htm

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.

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 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....
