Graceful Legwarmers (They NEVER Went Out of Style) :)

I’m a child of the 80’s so legwarmers never really went out of style for me. Luckily, the rest of the world is catching up. A friend on Facebook asked me to knit her a pair, so I made these, nothing to them, just double seed / moss stitch. I put them up on Ravelry and my blog free and in English and Portuguese. I’m calling them Graceful Legwarmers, named after the friend I made them for.


Very, very pretty and a lovely purple too! :yay: And how kind of you to put up the pattern for free! :muah:

The legwrmers look wonderful and the picture you’ve posted is even better. Very cool color and very sweet dog, too.

I always try to work my furbabies into the project photos. Hard when you’re using a camera timer, but I got lucky with this one. Thanks all. Just thought there might be some more leggings lovers out there. It’s a simple pattern, but even beginners need patterns.

They look great! :thumbsup:

Great job! Thanks for the pattern!

Very nice and love the color.

Thanks. BTW, that’s Vanna’s Choice in Eggplant colorway.

Although I’m not a fan of leg warmers, these are lovely.

I confess that I’ve made myself the first of a pair–not because they’re something I will EVER wear in public ('cause I won’t), but because my legs get cold when I’m working in my home office.

So even if you don’t find them fashionable, they’re very practical, and that’s a good thing, too!

Wow! Great color!

Question: on what sort of occasion would you wear leg warmers? And what would you wear [U]with[/U] leg warmers? I’m trying to picture the entire outfit…

Any time! Home, shopping, anything casual, Bible study. I wear them with leggings, I like the denim leggings from Walmart, they are stretchy and thick. I didn’t wear them for the pic because they are blue and there wasn’t enough contrast with the purple, so I chose some ugly old gray ones I wear around the house.

Your legwarmers are lovely! I started knitting a pair for a friend, and I was just winging them in the round with a 2 inch ribbing and stocking stitch but I think I’m going to start them over using your pattern.

Thank you for posting this!


I love me some legwarmers!

Thank you I’m so glad you guys like it. I need to make some for myself now. :slight_smile:
