These are chunky stirrup leg warmers for adults. A friend wanted to gift a custom pair to her athletic employee, and the result is stylish but still perfect for yoga class. It made me sad to think this custom pattern wouldn’t see the light of day again, so here it is for you to enjoy!

I’d love to see your work, so tag your Instagram pics with #knitsforlife or tweet them to me @knitsforlife
