Recently someone was looking for a pattern for toddler legwarmers, so I wanted to share some info.
I looked at baby/toddler legwarmers last year for my one year old and ended up knitting her a pair. This year is taller and I really don’t want to make knew ones every year. I found some on the web at a company called baby legs. Great idea, but I thought too expensive for what seems like not so great quality.
So this weekend, it was 5 degrees here. Did I mention it was cold? I took a pair of adult size wool ski socks and cut them off just above the heel. (I used a pair of Smartwool Socks.) Since the sock already had ribbing/elastic at the top they stay up over her knees. The cut edge is not unraveling, just curls up slightly like stockinette stitch would. These are working out great! And make potty training easier than with tights.
