Snow gets deep here in the upper midwest. Sometimes higher than my boots. And sometimes I just want to wear shoes without snow getting inside.
…and sometimes I just want to bring back the leg warmer because I LOVE the 80’s!
I’m going to wear these this winter with my boots and with my tennies over my leggings and my skinny jeans.
Here’s an easy pattern I came up with. These are cool! Make them for you and as a gift for your bestie!
Spiral Leg Warmers
I used a tweed grey worsted weight wool yarn that was deep in my yarn stash. No idea if you can still buy it but it’s Berger du Nord Tweed. I’m a pretty loose knitter and these leg warmers are pretty loose too but they stay up and I can scrunch them.
Needle size: US 8
Cast On (CO) 46 stitches
Knit in the round. Join ends and *Knit (k) 1 Pearl (p) 1; repeat * to end.
Work in k1, p1 rib for 1 1/2″
Then begin spiral pattern: k3, P2 repeat until leg warmer measures 13.25″ long.
Bind Off (BO)
Work the second leg warmer the same as the first.
