I have an 8 year old niece (small and wiry) who is a avid gymnast in an underheated gymnasium space. I would like to make her a simple pair of striped legwarmers. Can anyone suggest either a pattern or a basic rule of thumb for making them the right circumference? I just started knitting but I know how to do ribbing and I can knit on circular needles or straight (2 knitting needles). Thanks.
Also I am unable to access children’s patterns on knittinghelp.com (free patterns). The selection doesnt seem to have a clickable link. Maybe Amy or someone who knows how to get there can paste a link accessing that part of her site. Thanks.
