Fitting the upper leg portion of knee-highs can be tricky, but knitting from the toe-up allows you to try on and fit as you go. This fun pattern knits up quickly in dk-weight yarn and sports retro-style striping on the cuff and toes. Make yourself a pair and I guarantee you'll feel the urge to dust off your roller skates!
