Spicy Lace Leg Warmers
Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

1 1/4 pattern reps + 3 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

NOTES:

1. Legwarmers are meant to fit with negative ease (Legwarmer circumference should be less than body measurement) for a snug fit.
2. Pattern is written for Mini Legwarmers with specific changes for Maxi Legwarmers. When only one number is given, it applies to both sizes. To follow pattern more easily, circle all numbers pertaining to your size before beginning.
3. Due to openness of pattern stitch, Legwarmers are crocheted flat and then seamed for increased stability.
