Inspired by a friend who did the same, I whipped up these lil' leg warmers for my little one to eliminate the gap between her socks and her pant legs that forms when she sits in the stroller. Very easy, just plain old K2, P2 rib.

Soooo cute. I have the perfect little girl for these. Did you do them in the round or flat? How many stitches did you co?

I knit them in the round with DPNs. I used a DK weight yarn and a size 6 needle and cast on 24 stitches for a (small) 12 month old baby. I'd recommend binding off with a larger needle, since the CO and BO edges are pretty snug.

that's such a good idea, I get so frustrated when I see little ones with their poor legs hanging out in the cold, this is a stylish and clever solution. They are so cute.

I live in Alaska, and have three daughters and am always worried about the two little ones because it is so cold her (right now it's -7) and it's warmed up. This is such an awesome idea, thank you for posting.

A boy sure could wear them! Smiley For instance, my 23 mo. boy wears the Argyle and Flame ones from: http://babylegs.net/

Those are so adorable.  My mother in law made a couple of pairs for my 2.5 and 4 year old girls.  They wore them to their dancing class and got a lot of compliments.

Very cute and practical item!!
