These legwarmers can be ideal companions both for long walks in the woods or around the city and for charming evenings in the cozy nook with a book and a cup of hot chocolate. They are very warm due to the stranded colorwork, which doubles the worsted weight yarn. A bit of shaping and two cuffs guarantee the comfortable fit. Such leg warmers are a perfect choice for last-minute Christmas knits, as you can make a pair in just two days – but they look like they take way more effort. FINISHED SIZE - 11.4”/29 cm - 14.5”/37cm circumference at the leg (not stretched - stretched) - 9”/23cm - 11.8”/30cm in circumference at the ankle (not stretched - stretched) - 10”/26cm long (adjustable)
