These knitted leg warmers free knitting pattern is for anyone in the beginner level, as it only uses the knit and purl stitches.
So, if you are like me, only beginning to knit, this pattern is really easy to follow.
I love to make all kinds of accessories, and this time, I was in the mood to play with some leg warmers, as I previously already made a pair of boot cuffs. I opted to use a thick yarn to make the leg warmers really warm, they’re supposed to keep me warm after all!
Hope some of you will like it enough to make them too, and if you do, share some pictures with us! Will be so glad to see them!
And let me know if you like to see more of these free knitting patterns, so I can spend some time designing more of them.
- Yarn: worsted weight yarn
- Yardage: 200 yards (190 meters)
- Needle: US #8 (5 mm) straight
You could also circular needles and join in the round. But keep in mind, that doing this will alter the pattern, and you will have to knit on purl stitches rows, to maintain that plain stockinette row.
