Stripey Legwarmers
Stripey Legwarmers

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting in the round
  • ribbing
  • carrying up colors/changing colors

Pattern Description:

Dance the night away in these super-comfy cute legwarmers!

Stripey Legwarmers are knitted in the round from cuff to cuff. Cuffs are knitted in rib and the plain section alternates between two colors of yarn to create the stripes. The legwarmers are designed to be worn close-fitting and snug with 0" to -3" ease. Choose a size that fits close to your own so that they fit snugly and stay up whilst moving around or dancing. They do not (and should not) cut off circulation. The yarn and gauge used in the sample garment creates a very stretchy and forgiving fabric.
