A creeping vine lace pattern seemed the perfect stitch for these legwarmers for our latest club locale—the beanstalk from “Jack and the Beanstalk.” The lace climbs up the leg, twisting and turning as the result of perfectly placed increases and decreases. Choose from two sizes depending on whether you prefer them more fitted or more slouchy.
