When Julie Crawford aka KnittedBlissJC announced she was pregnant, I knew her baby would need a little special something created just for her. These legwarmers are my tribute to the newly arrived member of the Knitted Bliss family, miss Lila Somerset! A little bit lacy and a whole lotta girly, these little chevron leggings are the perfect spring & summer leggings for any new fashionista. Pattern includes a link to a video tutorial I created on working the lateral braid stitch, along with hints on how to finish the round so your braid doesn’t jog!
