Worked in a sport weight yarn, these legwarmes knit up fairly quickly. The legwarmers feature jogless stripes, colorful lollipops, cables, ending with a currogated ribbing.

You need a little more than 3 skeins (50g per skein) of the main colour for size L, for M and S, 3 skeins will do. You need less than half e skein of each contrasting colour.

Length: 24.5 inches
Calf circumference: 11.5 13, 14.5 inches
Lower thigh circumference: 14 16, 18 inches

The pattern gives instructions for making leg warmers with a strap under the foot. The leg warmers are worked “foot-up”. If you prefer, you can omit the strap and start with a ribbing. Or you could make stockings, using a toe-up sock pattern for similar gauge.

Legwarmers shown are worn with 1 inch of negative ease around calf and thigh.

Length can easily be adjusted by working more or less rounds of cable pattern.

Pattern gives instructions for working cables with and without cable needle. Cable pattern is presented both in text and chart.
