For those unaware, a “zebra crossing” is simply a crosswalk, often accompanied by zig-zag lines on the side of the road. Keep your ankles cozy as you prance across them with some coordinating legwarmers and cheery poms! The contrasting “back seam” calls to mind the sewn ladies’ stockings that were popular in the mid-twentieth century, and the drawstring helps keep them up around your calves (or you can scrunch them!) As written, approximately 11”/28cm around and 14”/35.5cm tall. You can widen, narrow, or add/subtract stripes to accommodate different leg widths.

There are video tutorials for the provisional cast on, grafting, cable cast on, and pompoms here:
