I love legwarmers, though it’s a look I’ve not successfully pulled off in the past. In fact, my very first attempt at knitwear design was a pair of button-up leg warmers. It was a good attempt, with nice Rowan Felted Tweed, but not a complete success: the buttons were ugly and not super functional (think about a size small cardigan buttoned over a size large belly and you’ll start to understand why buttons and legwarmers are not a match made in heaven).
So here’s a second try, by coincidence also in Felted Tweed. I’d had tinyowlknits’ Some cloudy day legwarmers in my queue for awhile, and when Urban Yarns started a tinyowl knitalong, it was time. Love it. It’s my goof-off knitting; it’s been years since I made so many mistakes in my knitting, but it doesn’t seem to matter! It’s just for fun.
