Free Knitting Pattern - Leg Warmers


Knitting Pattern for Little Girl Leggings

I designed and knit these leg warmers with a vintage yarn. Be sure to choose a yarn and needle size that matches gauge. DK weight on US 5-7 needles or Sport Weight on US 3-5 needles should work. Click this guide for help.

Yarn: One skein each of three colors.




M1: Make one stitch.
