Pic 6

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Make the 2nd one just like the first one.

Or…if you're tired of this project and want to move on, make a chain and attach it

to the larger end like a loop so you can hang it up and use it as a grocery bag

keeper.

 

CUSTOM FIT

Measure around the leg, just below the knee.

Follow the pattern instructions for the top ribbing and stop when it's 1" shorter than that measurement. Make sure your number of rows in the ribbing is divisible by 8.

Measure the length of the leg from just below the knee to the ankle.

Follow the pattern instructions until the leg is as long as that measurement, end with a row 6.

Follow the instructions for the ankle ribbing.

You will have a leg warmer that will fit the intended leg. Remeber that if you are working from the custom fit measurements your stitch count at the end of rows will be different from what is written in my pattern.

I'm looking forward to trying this pattern out as well. For myself and my oldest daughter. They are sassy, yet classy and I think with the right colors my girls would have a blast with them. Thank you for sharing this pattern.

Hallo,

I would like to make this legwarmers but I encountered some difficulties,as for example:

at round 3 at the end of the explanation I see (12 ch- 3 sps),what does it mean?Do I have to do 12 chains and leave three spaces?I tried to do this but the result did not convince me.

Can you help me please?
