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. Choose a wool in a texture and colour that appeals to you, or make two mismatched leg warmers.
Things you need
- 2 skeins of worsted knitting wool in the colour of your choice
- Circular knitting needles size 6 (UK)
- 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 6.2 cm (2 1/2 inches).
Knit in stockinet stitch for 47.5 cm (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 6.2 cm (2 1/2 inches).
Bind off the project.
Weave the ends of the wool into the project using the knitting sewing needle.
Repeat all above steps to make the second leg warmer.
