For those unaware, a โ€œzebra crossingโ€ 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 โ€œback seamโ€ 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 11โ€/28cm around and 14โ€/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:
