Candy-Striped Legwarmers

Craft & Design Yarncraft

My pal Cynthia recently posted these fresh and fun legwarmers on her blog and I’m crazy about ’em! She says they’re super stretchy and will fit skinny and plump calves with no problem, and they sound easy to knit up as well:

The basic formula: worsted weight yarn, 56 stitches knit in the round, 2×2 rib…for as long as you’d like em. (These were about 17″ long.)

I also love the colors she used, which are from the Lion Brand “Vanna’s Choice” collection. Link.
