These legwarmers, which can be made in either the smaller, ankle-warmers size, or the taller size, button around your legs, for both form and functional purposes. Not only do the strappy pieces look super cool, but if you get too warm, you can easily take them off without having to remove your shoes!
The pattern is given as both written instructions and charts, separate patterns/charts for each leg, and additions to turn the regular size into the taller size. This would be a good pattern for an intermediate-level knitter new to cables, since there are several different cables involved, but they never get too complex.
2.75 sts per inch (or 5.5 sts per 2 inches), 5.5 sts per 5cm, in stockinette (gauge shouldnʼt be too dense - using one needle size bigger than you might normally use works well for these)
