Traditional fisherman’s sweater texture, combined with tall, slim fitting legwarmers, perfect for yoga. The pleats stretch quite easily to fit all sizes. Instructions for toddlers, kids and adults. A really easy pattern for beginners, knit in the round on worsted weight yarn.

I love to wear capri leggings to spinning and yoga, but I also live in Canada, so slim fitting tall legwarmers were definitely needed to get to the studio and back. Legwarmers should fit snugly around ankles and knees, but also stretch easily over the rest of the leg. I chose textures that would hug close to the ankle, but also stretch to accomodate cycler’s calves. The combined 2 by 2 ribbing and a traditional pleated fisherman’s sweater pattern resulted in really stretchy, very easy legwarmers. As a result, size and gauge should not be major concerns.

The original version of the pattern suggested a stretchy bind off. My legs definitely need that much stretch, but many will prefer a smoother, more fitted finish, using a regular bind off. The pattern has been edited to reflect the feedback.
