Pattern description from Handknit Holidays: “Before venturing out to choose this year’s Christmas tree - whether you cut it yourself in the woods or drag it home from the corner market down city streets - pull on these leg warmers for some added warmth and holiday spirit. Bright and festive, the traditional Christmas colors and patterned stripes are a sure way to bring on the holiday cheer at the beginning of the season. Look closely at the Fair isle patterning, and you’ll find it forms garlands of holly leaves.”
