These were really fun and fast to knit! I used some soft, warm (but acrylic) baby yarn in pink and white. It was just done with a k2 p2 rib... pretty easy, eh? I'll probably add a ribbon or something at the top as well to help hold them up. Legwarmers are so much fun to wear! Cheesy

My carpet wearing them -


And on my legs...


Feedback would be great... I'm pretty new at knitting. Thanks for looking!  Smiley

all we were searching for was someone or something to believe in. i guess that's why we got each other.

leg warmers ARE great

I like that the colors are reminscent of the 80s but not completely obvious. (plus I love stripes!)
very good job!

These are precious.  Where did you get the pattern?  Or did you freehand them?  They're really nice either way.

I googled the pattern and found it on about.com. it suggested circular needles, but i just used regular old needles. it was just cast on with 40 stitches and k2 p2 the whole time. thanks Smiley
