Leg warmers keep your legs toasty warm and are fashionable as well. You can see them on the legs of dancers, yogis and fashionistas. If you know a bit about knitting, you should be able to knit your own leg warmers using the instructions below. Choose a yarn in a texture and color that appeals to you, or make two mismatched leg warmers.
Things You'll Need
- 2 skeins of worsted knitting yarn in the color of your choice
- Circular knitting needles size 8 (U.S.)
- Knitting sewing needle
- Tape measure
Cast on 42 stitches using the circular knitting needles.
Knit in ribbing stitch (knit one and then purl one) for 2 1/2 inches.
Knit in stockinette stitch for 19 inches. Use a tape measure to ensure that you have reached the desired length.
Repeat step number 2, knitting in ribbing stitch again for 2 1/2 inches.
Bind off the project.
Weave the ends of the yarn into the project using the knitting sewing needle.
Repeat all above steps to make the second leg warmer.
