I suppose for most people, the idea of having your legs covered in bugs would be rather creepy. I’m not much of a fan of bugs in reality, quite the opposite in fact, but I do enjoy knitting them in colorful shades of wool. These legwarmers help make a bright and cozy transition from winter into spring. Perhaps it’s still a little chilly to wear a skirt and bare your knees, but put on some legwarmers, and your skirt can be just a little bit shorter, or a lot shorter if that’s your thing. The legwarmers are knit in the round, with stranded colorwork. They’re a great project for using up remainders of various colors of yarn.
