Frank Lloyd Wright used stained glass in many of his houses, including the Robie House in Hyde Park, Illinois. His most renowned prairie style design is also full of his famous stained glass windows, inside and out. It’s hard not to want to cover yourself in stained glass inspired clothes leaving this house!
The Hyde Park Legwarmers are a great leg warmer for summer; small and fun and easy to wear with anything! The sock weight yarn lets these babies breathe while keeping you warm on cooler summer nights. As the weather turns cooler, wear them over tights or pull them up to cover your knees while wearing high boots. Any worsted weight yarn and sock yarn will work so play with colors and patterns! More defined stripping yarn just adds to the stained glass effect.
