Legwarmers

Here are my Cork legwarmers! I knit these twice as they were too loose the first time. But now they fit me perfectly, and here's how I made them:

The legwarmers are worked from top to bottom.

Cast on 30sts with 7 1/2 mm needles, using black yarn.

Work in k2 p2 rib doing stripes of 4 rows black then 4 rows grey, until 15 stripes in total have been worked.

Next stripe (grey): Work 2 rows.

Next row: *k2, p1 m1 p1* rep to last 2 sts, k2.

Next row: *p2, k3* rep to end, p2.

Continuing in this new k2 p3 rib, work one more black stripe, then cast off in rib and seam up the back.

Here they are pulled up:

Here they are how I will wear them:
