Alva Legwarmers, are an ideal additon to your wardrobe. The legwarmers can be worn with your leggings, jeggings, jeans and of course with a boho long skirt. Leg warmers are a must if you, a friend or loved one are a keen walker. Keen hill walkers I know use hand knitted leg warmers over their gaiters with walking boots.
The leg warmers are knitted top down in the round and are slightly shaped. The pattern matches at the top and bottom thirds of the garment but not in the middle, which is one of the traditional ways of knitting long stockings – and very liberating! The legwarmers can be knitted without shaping which results in loose fit around ankles.
