Pattern Description:

These colourful legwarmers are a perfect extra layer for your little one during the colder months. They have a nifty little foot stirrup to help them stay put. Especially helpful for wriggly babies and little crawlers.

Using less than 50 grams of aran weight yarn they are a quick and easy knit. Perfect for the fast approaching cold weather or a last minute gift. Available in two styles, slim fit and slouchy fit, these leg warmers are available in three sizes.

The PDF contains two patterns, a slim fitting version and slouchy version.
