Here's my version of the "coming back into fashion" legwarmers. I used Filatura Di Crosa 127 Print in shade 23 - purchased at my favorite knitting store in Charleston, SC -Knit on Charlotte St (downtown). I used size 6 dpns - CO 52 stitches, worked 8 rows in 1x1 rib, then switched to stockinette stitch until I ran out of yarn (I used 3 balls total).
(and please - no comments on the lack of tan - it's only April for crying out loud. :-P)
