Valley Yarns 177 Smithie Legwarmers (Free)
One pattern, two options! Knit a simple pair of leg warmers or a more detailed pair to keep your legs warm on those days when you’re ready to wear your capris, but the forecast isn’t quite cooperating with you.
Notes on sizing: Measure your calf at its widest point. These legwarmers are designed to fit snugly, with a fair bit of negative ease. For a more relaxed fit, knit a size or two larger than your measurements.
