Love wearing skirts? Hate cold legs, but don’t want to be washing socks every day? Boots letting in draughts, but don’t have enough room for thick woolly socks? Admit it, perhaps legwarmers are the thing for you.

These are really simple to make. No shaping necessary, just knit in the round and stick ‘em on your pins.

ERRATUM (sigh. it had to happen)

Microsoft Word defies me once again. Full diamond pattern repeat consists of 16 rows.
