Traveling Stitch Legwarmers
Pattern description from Knit So Fine & Interweave Knits, Spring 2008: “These legwarmers more closely resemble close-fitting leggings than the slouchy legwarmers of the 1980s. They hug the leg from the cuff to the thigh in an elaborate traveling-stitch pattern that come from traditional Austrian knee socks. The calves are shaped with increases and decreases hidden in the lozenge-shaped motif. Warmer and more comfortable than tights, you want to pull these on with your favorite skirt all winter long.”
