I found this pattern for leg warmers and kinda adapted it but thought it was really cute. My daughter loves it. You can do it in 2 colors or multiple colors. I did 2 colors but the pattern called for 4 colors (did not write them down just the pattern). I will write down the pattern that I did though.
Size 8 needles. I did them on straight needles but now I am trying one in the round. I think I like it better. You can do it either with straight or 4 dp needles.
K1 P1 for 6 rows in MC
K next row with MC
st st till desired length
Begin with 3 rows in CC increasing in middle of 2nd row.
2 rows MC
1 row CC
3 rows MC (increase 2nd row)
2 rows CC
2 rows MC
1 row CC repeat until desired length is achieved.
(After a certain point I stopped doing the pattern and just did it in the MC from about knee up to the end)
K1 P1 for 6 rows
If on straight needles leave a long enough strand to sew up seam.
I am fairly new at this and my little notes might not make sense but I think this pattern is right. My daughter is a little over 30 lbs and doesn’t have very chunky legs. I think this pattern can be adjusted to fit different sizes though and is pretty stretchy.
I can’t upload as I do not know how to resize my pics, sorry!!
