All the legwarmer patterns I have seen so far have sort of bellbottoms at the feet. I want the Japanese style ones with ribbing at the top and bottom, so they're baggy in the middle. Anyone seen a pattern for something like this?

seems to me like you could just knit in the round a ribbed cuff for a few inches, then increase the stitches and make a larger tube, then finish with the same kind of cuff. good luck!

The legwarmer pattern in "Weekend Knitting" by Melanie Falick is similar to what you describe, I think.

But as homegirleh said, this would also be an easy pattern to improvise.

Good luck! I love legwarmers!
