After working seven years as a special education teacher, I put teaching aside to stay home with my two young children. Over the last two years I have branched into designing knitwear, and am published in both print and online publications. I love spending my days with my husband and kids. In my very rare spare time, I try to squeeze in any quantity of knitting. I also enjoy gardening, baking, reading and sewing in addition to watching way too much Masterpiece Mystery and old movies.
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.
