Free Knitting Pattern: Lace Legs
Need something to warm up your legs when the temperatures drop, or do you miss wearing some of your favorite skirts or dresses because it's so chilly out. Or are you like me and are longing for spring and just can't accept that its cold out and you need to wear pants. Why not try knitting a pair of lace legwarmers in your favorite fiber to keep your gams toasty warm while you wear your favorite flirty skirt.
These are simple to knit only requiring the knitter to have basic lace knowledge, mainly yarn overs, and two stitch decrease.
