Pointe Work Legwarmers in Blue

Pointe Work Legwarmers in Blue

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting in the round

Pattern Description:

These legwarmers were made specifically for a ballet dancer. The cotton knit very tight makes them stiff, which is great for ballet, but probably not fun for everyday. I chose cotton because it does not slip on tights, so they stay on even while dancing. Though this is still my daughter's favorite pair, I'm not sure I would do it again in the same yarn; it is quite hard on your fingers. So unless you are planning to make this for a ballet dancer, I would recommend using a wool blend.
