Hi.....I have been looking for a knitting pattern to make my 5 year old granddaughter some leg warmers for this next winter. Have not been able to find a pattern on line and hope someone has knitting directions they would like to share.

i like to use worsted 4 ply, it'll look almost bulky on the little people, and i cast on 46 sts, knit in k1,p1 rib all the way. this keeps them from sagging. then for design, i just do 6 inches of one color, change color for approx 10 inches and then do 6 inches more of the first color (or even a third coordinating color) after binding off in a stretchy binding, turn both bottom and top sections into cuffs....they fit longer that way and are cute, too....(these were the proportions i used for a 4 yr old and they fit her for 2 winters)....

I have been looking for a pattern also!! Thanks for sharing your pattern!!! Leg warmers are also great too for cool evenings in most season depending on the type of yarn!

Hi
Google: Leg warmers to knit for kids. Be sure to type "to knit" otherwise you'll get leg warmers ready made.
Use a sock pattern and put a rib on both ends without the foot.
Use all your yarn scraps to make them striped.
Regard,
Lu

I have a very old pattern book of leg warmers - probably from the 70s. If you are interested in the patterns please pm me and I'll try to dig it up.

What a great idea! My 6 yr old Grand daughter is into gymnastics and she might enjoy this ideas--she is always 'warm' and won't wear sweaters--lucky for me her little brother is a 'popsicle boy' and loves sweater from his Gigi.

Thanks for the pattern. I've been looking for one. What size knitting needles do you use? I'm anxious to make my granddaughter a pair for ballet class this winter. Kirsten
