Pattern Description from One Skein: “Widely popular in the 1980s, leg warmers are making a comeback. And for good reason. Not only are they a great beginner project, they really do keep your legs warm. This pair has a subtle rib at one end and a lace pattern at the other, with smooth stockinette stitch in between. Wear the lace panel at the top or bottom, and add a silk ribbon for a romantic touch.”
