I decided a friend of my absolutely needed a pair of legwarmers for her birthday that she could use with high heels. And these are what I came up with:

Pattern: my own (see below)
Needles: 3 mm
Yarn: Novita 7 Veljestä (maybe half a skein)
More pictures in Ravelry

When knitting the red mug jacket (in the previous post) I fell so much in love with the smock-pattern that I decided to use it again in these. The rest was just very easy: CO 72 st, do a k2p2 rib in both ends and work the smock-pattern in between. Last but not least, I added some black buttons. Et voilĂ ! I think they turned out almost perfect. Now my friend can stay warm and still be elegant during this upcoming autumn.
