Worked flat from the bottom up in linen stitch with three colors that are alternated at the end of each row for nearly effortless, pixelated stripes, these fun little legwarmers are a treat to make! Post stitches add a little extra texture at the top and bottom edges and they can be closed with tons of buttons or a simple seam if you prefer. These are not intended to be fitted legwarmers, except at the top where they hug the calf if you’re wearing them as boot toppers, so that they can be scrunched up for a more casual look.
