Just off the needles, Pirates of the Phantom Waves Legwarmers for my ballerina daughter! Inspired by a ballet (in which she performed) of the same name, these colorwork legwarmers have alternating waves and skull and bones flowers. Further inspiration came in the way of the cutest ever stitchmarkers from Voolenvine on Etsy. Adorable, right?

I improvised the legwarmer pattern and designed the colorwork myself using Intwined Studio software. The legwarmers are ballerina-style long and the colorwork makes them extra warm. I even love the way the wrong side of the colorwork came out!
