When the West Coast of Canada enters Scorpio, it gets cold fast. The damp chill air of the island makes one glad to have a fire stove, tea and warm cozy leg warmers on hand to add extra warmth and layers. Scorpio leg warmers were inspired by a desire to have a thick, and soft leg warmer that I could wear in the darker months of the year both around the house and while wandering the Winter ocean shore. It’s a sister design to my “Earth Mama Leg Warmers” pattern, offering a bit more weight. The body ribbing helps the leg warmer hug your leg while the larger gauge ribbing at the bottom allows it to drape over your boot easily. It’s a very quick knit, making it ideal for gift knitting.

Sizing: S (M, L) To Fit 30 – 35 cm (35-40 cm, 40- 45cm) or 12 – 14’’ (14 – 16’’, 16 – 18’’) calf circumference.
All sizes are approximately 39.5 cm / 15.5’’ in total length after blocking and is easily customizable.
