The Queen Bee Leg Warmers were inspired by the intricately detailed honeycombs created by our honey bees. These leg warmers are perfect for keeping your busy little bee’s legs toasty warm and oh so stylish!

Knit with one skein of super soft, washable, Luna Grey Fiber Arts Aspen Sport yarn. Pattern includes instructions for three sizes; 1-3 years, 4-6 years & 7-9 years.

The Queen Bee Leg Warmers are knit in the round using double pointed needles. The cuff is knit with needles 2 sizes smaller than the body of the warmers to ensure a snug, secure fit. The highly textured honeycomb lace pattern is easy to memorize and fast to knit. I used nearly the entire skein of Aspen Sport yarn for the size large leg warmers.

One skein of Luna Grey Fiber Arts Aspen Sport yarn (100% Superwash Merino Wool 274 yards/100g). Sample knit in the Honeycomb colorway.

One set of US #2 (2.75mm) double pointed needles
One set of US #4 (5.5mm) double pointed needles or size needed to obtain gauge.

Two circular needles or magic loop may be used if you prefer.

Please note: Gauge is not critical for this pattern. However, if your gauge varies significantly, one skein of yarn may not be enough to complete the pattern.

Tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
