Heya, don't know if anyone's posted this as I'm usually lurking in the knitting and crochet boards but this is the best idea for xmas and you can make believe you made them from scratch! Impress snotty family members!!
Take a kid's sweater or cardigan (i use kids' cause im wee and theyre cheaper at the sally ann) and rip apart the seam where the sleave joins the sweater.  you may need to tidy this up; use ribbon in a pretty colour....and you're done! instant legwarmers!
 I got the idea from seventeen magazine years ago but now legwarmers cost so much and its xmas i thought i'd post!
(bonus: i could never have done all this fair isle b4 xmas)
sorry its poo to take a photo of your own leg.

cute idea. by the way, there are always millions of crazy pattern sweaters at thrift shops- usually for a dollar or two..

I made some out of a really thick and stretchy black sweater--not really for the looks, but because it actually keeps my legs warm!! I didn't even finish the end (the side closer to the body of the sweater), I just kind of fold it under.
