Leg Warmers with Stripes

Knifty Knitter Striped Leg Warmers


Instructions
1. Note: This set of warmers was made from the classic wool. They are nice and warm and the knitting looks great. Be aware, however, that when the wool is washed it might shrink. If you want them to stay the size that you have made them, they will have to be dry-cleaned.
2. 1. Using two strands of Natural Mix yarn as one, e-wrap (wrapping loops on pegs that look like series of lowercase eรข€™s) two times around loom and knit off (pulling bottom loop over top loop and peg).
3. 2. Knit 10 rows and carefully reach inside loom and place loops from first row back over pegs. This makes brim or cuff for top of the leg warmer. Knit this row.
4. 3. Continue knitting until leg warmer is 14" long (or desired length) using following pattern: 6 rows Rich Red yarn Next 4 rows Natural Mix yarn Next 4 rows Rich Red yarn Next 4 rows Natural Mix yarn Next 4 rows Rich Red yarn Next 4 rows Natural Mix yarn Next 4 rows Rich Red yarn Next 4 rows Natural Mix yarn Next 4 rows Rich Red yarn Next 4 rows Natural Mix yarn Next 4 rows Rich Red yarn Next 4 rows Natural Mix yarn Next 6 rows Rich Red yarn Next 6 rows Natural Mix yarn
5. 4. Using crochet hook, take first two loops off loom and pull second loop through first. Continue on around to take all loops off loom.
6. 5. Knit second leg warmer using directions above. Add beads, button, bells, or whatever you would like to decorate.
