These flattering, straight-leg legwarmers are designed to cuddle your calves on cool days. They’re great under a skirt, or for stretching out after a chilly run. The top section can be rolled down below the knee, or turned straight up over the knee for extra warmth.

Finishing tip:
If these are too loose around the top or fall down, purchase some elastic beading thread in a coordinating color. Using a tapestry needle, thread the elastic through the stitches about 4 inches from the top. You want it to be near the top of the cuff on the legwarmer when rolled down, but be hidden under the cuff. I went behind each knit stitch, and in front of each purl stitch.

Try it on, pull your elastic snug (but not so tight that it restricts circulation), and tie a knot.
