Notes

I had the instinct to add 4 stitches because my legs are big for as small as I am. I didn’t. They fit fine, but since I like to wear legwarmers over pants, I wish that I did have that little bit of ease so that they wouldn’t stretch so taut over my pants.

I figured that since I had less than 220 yards of yarn, they might be shorter than written, but I think they are longer! I’m too lazy to measure right now, though. :) The trick of knitting the first row of a color change for a clean change is a winner.
