Okay, I did a search LOL I keep getting errors. Either the nasty search daemons are after me or the links I find are broken.... Sad Waaaaah! Grin Sooooooooo I wanna make my girls some armwarmers, legwarmers, and of course the calorimetry. I have tips/ideas on how to do the latter..... but how do you alter the other patterns? Or better yet where could I find some patterns for kiddos for free? Cheesy Free is better since I am a SAHM Grin hehehehe They are 5 & 7 (my girlie o's) LMAO Cheesy TIA

A lot of yarn sites have free patterns for children. Check out www.lionbrand.com, www.patonsyarns.com, www.michaels.com, www.bernat.com, and www.sugerncream.com. The last two especially. All but Michael's you have to be a member to view/print patterns, but the membership's are free. Sorry I couldn't give you any specific patterns. I hope you find what you're looking for.

For the Calorimetry you could cast on 60-80 stitches and just do half the short rows needed. Check this Calorimetry KAL thread:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=138243.0
It has alot of discussions about altering the Calo, as well as tips on adding things like kitty ears and whatnot.

Knitty has a bunch of nice kids patterns.
http://knitty.com/archiveKIDSWEAR.html

For armwarmers you can just knit a small rectangle and fold in half sewing up the side leaving a hole for the thumb. There aren't alot of patterns for little kid armwarmers that I could find.
For legwarmers you could just knit adult size socks and stop before you have to do any foot shaping. Or you could so the same as the simple rectangle idea for armwarmers... just longer. You can check this thread by girlypirate:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=10620.msg82875#msg82875

You could also try here, Knitting Pattern Central is probably my favoritest place to look for patterns for darn near anything:
http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/girls_clothing.php
main directory: http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory.php

And... all free. Good luck!

2/18/12 - I no longer have the directions for wrapped pens, I lost them several years ago. To obtain them for yourself, do like I did, contact DMC threads directly and ask for them.

NN, I know this is an old thread and I know you're still new to knitting, but I bet you could just wing it with the arm and leg warmers.

You could cast on a few stitches and figure out the gauge (or rather how many stitches you're getting for every inch).  Then measure your kiddos' arms and legs to see how many inches around they are and cast on that many stitches.  Then just knit it until it looks long enough Smiley
