I hope you enjoy this basic pattern for some slightly slouchy 80's styled leg warmers.
The pattern is good for beginner knitters, or even just something fun for the experienced. You could probably use intarsa or fair isle to put whatever patterns you wanted on it. I just used a variegated acrylic for this. If you use one color, its a really quick knit.
Well, without further delay, here's the materials list and pattern:
Worsted weight /Aran weight acrylic wool
US 5 Circular or Double Pointed needles.
A pair of scissors
a yarn needle for weaving in the ends.
A stitch marker -not necessary but nice to have
a stitch counter - again not necessary but really handy
Cast on 66 stitches
Rib stitch for 20 rows
Knit for 60 rows
In rib formation, Knit one, purl 2 together
Rib stitch for the next 20 rows.
Tuck in your ends and you are done!
You can modify the pattern to be a bit tighter or looser by increasing or decreasing your cast on by a few stitches.
Enjoy and use to stay warm in the cold weather.
