Sizing: Pattern gives stitch counts for a legwarmer circumference of 15 (16, 18, 19, 22, 24, 27) cm / 6 (6¼, 7, 7½, 8½, 9½, 10½)”; this approximately equates to baby (toddler, child, teen, small adult, adult, large adult). There is some flexibility on the sizing as the legwarmers are designed to be fairly loose. If you prefer a snug fit you may wish to opt for a smaller size.
As written the legwarmer length will be approximately 23 (25, 29, 32, 38, 45, 43) cm / 9 (10, 11½, 12½, 15, 17¾, 17). You can easily adjust the length by working more, or fewer, repeats of the stitch pattern.
