Ruched Legwarmers are a pair of legwarmers that evoke the cozy rusticity of sturdy wool blankets and boot socks, but provide the warmth and luxurious feel of cashmere with Knit Picks Capra. The ruching provides a textural twist to 1980s-style legwarmers by enhancing a slouchy appearance while retaining the structure for a comfortable fit without falling down.

Legwarmers are sized for small, medium, and large adult, and are worked in the round.

For size large, if additional stripes of the contrasting colour are added, three balls of the main colour may be sufficient.
