The finished legwarmers have an all-over cabled design, perfect for keeping bare legs cool in the Fall/ Winter/ Spring seasons. The non-bulky design and use of lace weight yarn allows for items to fit over tights and inside of boots. Due to the amount of stretch, these leg warmers can fit most sizes 12 months up to 6y. Once knitted, these leggings are a perfect three-season accessory.

Pattern includes: comprehensive charts, detailed written instructions, suggestions, and color photos.
