I have been wanting to make a pair of leg warmers for my daughter for so long, and I’m happy to say that they are finally complete! She loves to dance and I wanted to make some cozy super soft leg warmers to keep her ankles nice and toasty. I’m so happy with the result, and I hope you like them too because I posted the pattern for free!

Leg Warmers Knitting Pattern
Here is what you will need to make these soft and cozy leg warmers:
- US 10 (6.0 mm) straight knitting needles.
- 1 Ball (100 grams) of Knit Picks Mighty Stitch yarn in Mint. This is just enough yarn for two leg warmers, so if you make them longer you will need an extra ball of yarn.
- Yarn Needle
4 Stitches, 5.5 Rows = 1″ in stockinette stitch
4″ Wide X 14″ Long
YO: Yarn Over
K2TogTBL: Knit Two Together Through the Back Loop

Row 1 (right side): K2, *P2, K2; repeat from * to end of row.
Row 2: P2, *K2, P2; repeat from * to end of row.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 three more times (total of 8 rows) to create ribbing.
