i've looked around for crocheted legwarmers and haven't found any that look like these. . .
heres a pattern slightly similar that you could maybe shorten and change to have cables or something. i don't really know anything about crocheting.

a positive attitude may not improve the situation, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Out of curiosity what thickness is the yarn you used for these? I don't order yarn online and I can't find the brand in the pattern in the stores near me.
I was also wondering if you used the exact same size needles or used a different size?
I'm contemplating how to convert to something similar in crochet and this will help greatly. Smiley

I love your legwarmers and have been trying to come up with an alternative to boots so I can keep wearing my flats and fakenstocks. Smiley

Thickness??? i'm not quite sure what you mean, but i used Bucilla 100% wool, it was just what i had at the time. i'm sure you could use anything you wanted, as long as it was the correct gauge. but wool is probably warmer. . .i used size US 8 needles instead of size 7. i was worried that they would come out too big, but it seemed to turn out fine, and since the I-cord holds them up, the fit around your calf can be adjusted. hopefully i've helped you and i hope you are successful in converting this pattern  Smiley

these took me about 2-3 weeks, but that was just when i had time.  i'm sure they could be knit faster Smiley
