When the West Coast of Canada enters Scorpio, it gets cold fast. The damp chill air of the island makes one glad to have a fire stove, tea and warm cozy leg warmers on hand to add extra warmth and layers. Scorpio leg warmers were inspired by a desire to have a thick, and soft leg warmer that I could wear in the darker months of the year both around the house and while wandering the Winter ocean shore. The body ribbing helps the leg warmer hug your leg while the larger gauge ribbing at the bottom allows it to drape over your boot easily. It's a very quick knit, making it ideal for gift knitting.
