These legwarmers are as much fun to knit as they are to wear, and it makes it even better if you do both with one of your best girlfriends! The striping is soothing and simple; the slip-stitch Paper Doll Motif is interesting without being difficult. An added bonus is that the slip-stitch helps the legwarmers stay up. Just like a good friend, both fun AND pragmatic.

Yarn - Approximately 300 yards/275 meters worsted-weight yarn, split between two colors as follows. Color A: 180 yards/165 meters. Color B: 120 yards/110 meters.

Needles - US #7/4.5 mm (or size to get gauge) for knitting a small item in the round (either double points, two circulars, or one long circular for magic loop), AND one size smaller for ribbing, AND one size larger for mosaic and cast on (optional). Notions - Tapestry needle, stitch marker.

Skill level - Advanced beginner (knitting in the round, slip-stitch/mosaic knitting).
