This simple leg warmer pattern was designed with active toddlers/children in mind. My daughter loves to play outside and consequentially gets frequently messy when on the swings at the park or running around in our grassy backyard. I liked the idea of creating a go-to pair of leg warmers for her that I could toss in the washing machine after a trip to the playground.

This pattern includes instructions for sizes/ages 0- 6 months up to 7 years old. The various sizes are based on a collection of measurements from children ages 1 month to 6 years old. If you would like to make leg warmers that CUSTOM FIT the recipient, then you can follow a formula also included in this document.

Approximately 50 (80, 115, 140, 200) yards of worsted weight yarn
