From Lace Style:



Openwork zigs and zags give a ribbed appearance to Lisa Daehlin’s casually dressy leg warmers.  Ribbed edgings at top and bottom border a pattern that alternates fagot lace with panels of wavy stockinette stitch.  To allow for the increased circumference of the calf, Lisa changed to larger needles along the way.  Wear these leg warmers over brightly colored stockings for a bold, kicky look. 

NOTE: See LisaDaehlin’s project page for a CHART to this lace pattern.
