Rib stitch is very stretchy but that may be what you want. I made a hat all rib and it stretched way too much. This was worsted weight and acrylic. You may want to try out your pattern on some waste yarn before actally making them. The one I made out of all cotton did the same it was way to stretchy.

There is a male knitter who posts leg warmers a lot. I can't remember the name he is with his motor cycle in the pix. Keep your eyes open and I am sure you could pm him for info. There have posts with legwarmers in the title.
