You need:

  1. 400 yards worsted yarn (200 for each leg)
  2. 4.5mm double pointed knitting needles (4)
  3. cable needle

I made these to fit my leg. Ankle, 8 inches, calf 13 inches. They have k2, p2 panels to help fit a variety of sizes. The actual legging measures (laying flat) 3 inches at the bottom cuff and 5 inches at the top cuff. It stretches A LOT. I can stretch the top up to 9 inches (laying flat) and the bottom up to 5 inches. 

Gauge: k2, p2 in the round 14 sts in 2 inches
