LEG

With yarn doubled, CO 75 sts onto 1 needle. Divide sts evenly on 3 needles (25 sts each needle). Join for working in the rnd, being careful not to twist sts, and place marker (pm) after first st to denote beg of rnd. Cut off extra strand of yarn; cont with single strand.

Cuff: Work k2, pi ribbing for 32 rnds— piece should measure 3" (7.5 cm) from beg. Leg: K6, pi, [k5, plj 10 times, k6, p2. Rep the last rnd 7 more times. On the next rnd, establish openwork patt as foil: K6, work Rnd 1 of openwork patt (page 75) over 61 sts, k6, p2. Work in patts as established until 14 rnds of openwork patt have been completed, ending with Rnd 4. On the next rnd (Rnd 5 of openwork patt), work as established to last 2 sts, p2tog—74 sts rem. Rnd 1: SI 1, kl, psso, k4, work Rnd 1 of openwork patt over 61 sts, k4, k2tog, pi— 72 sts rem.

Rnds 2-10: K5, work 61 sts in openwork patt, 1<5, pi.

Rnd 11: Si 1, kl, psso, k3, work 61 sts in openwork patt, 1<3, k2tog, pi—70 sts rem. Rnds 12-20: K4, work 61 sts in openwork patt, k4, pi.

Rnd 21: SI 1, kl, psso, k2, work 61 sts in openwork patt, 1<2, k2tog, pi—68 sts rem. Rnds 22-30: K3, work 61 sts in openwork patt, k3, pi.

Rnd 31: SI 1, kl, psso, kl, work 61 sts in openwork patt, kl, k2iog, pi—66 sts rem. Rnds 32—40: K2, work 61 sts in openwork patt, k2, pi.

Rnd 41: SI 1, kl, psso, work 61 sts in openwork patt, k2tog, pi—64 sts rem. Rnds 42-50: Kl, work 61 sts in openwork patt, kl, pi.

Rnd 51: SI 1, kl, psso, kl, k2tog, yo, k2, work 54 sts in openwork patt (omit the "plus 1" purl st at end), k2tog, pi—62 sts rem.

Rnd 52: K6, [pi, k5j 9 times, kl, pi. Rnd 53: Kl, l<2tog, yo, kl, yo, si 1, kl, psso, [pi, l<2tog, yo, kl, yo, si 1, kl, psso] 9 times, kl, pi.

Rnds 54 and 55: Rep Rnd 52. Rnd 56: K2, k2tog, yo, k2, [pi, kl, k2tog, yo, k2l 9 times, kl, pi. Rnds 57-60: Rep Rnds 52-55. Rnd 61: K2, k2tog, yo, k2, [pi, kl, k2tog, yo, k2] 9 times, si 1, temporarily remove end-of-rnd marker, p2tog (last st of this rnd tog with first st of next rnd), psso—60 sts rem. The double dec st just worked is the new first st of the rnd; mark this st with end-of-rnd marker.

Rnds 62-84: Work the 6-st rep of openwork patt 10 times around, omitting the "plus 1" purl st at end of patt.

Rnd 85: (Rnd 5 of openwork patt) Work in patt to last 15 sts of rnd—twenty 5-rncl reps of openwork patt completed (except for last 15 unworked sts); piece should measure about 12" (30.5 cm) from CO.
