Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • knit in the round

Pattern Description:

This simple leg warmer pattern was designed with active toddlers/children in mind. My daughter loves to play outside and consequentially gets frequently messy when on the swings at the park or running around in our grassy backyard. I liked the idea of creating a go-to pair of leg warmers for her that I could toss in the washing machine after a trip to the playground.

This pattern includes instructions for sizes/ages 0- 6 months up to 7 years old. The various sizes are based on a collection of measurements from children ages 1 month to 6 years old. If you would like to make leg warmers that custom fit the recipient, then you can follow a formula also included in this document.


18 stitches = 4 inches in stockinette stitch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 0 - 6 months (6-12 months, 2-3years, 4-5 years, 6-7 years) Length = 6 (8, 10, 12, 14) inches Width (circumference)= 6 (7, 8, 9, 10) inches


  • 4 US size 7 double pointed needles or size needed to obtain correct gauge
  • Approximately 50 (80, 115, 140, 200) yards of worsted weight yarn

You Will Also Need:

  • Stitch marker
  • Tapestry needle
  • Scissors
