  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    Compile a collection of worsted weight yarns to knit these playful legwarmers. The colors blend together with striped garter stitch and seed stitch sections separated by solid stockinette bands of color. You can make the full knee high sample length or customize the length for a shorter version. These tubes are super easy to knit and they’re great for using those leftover bits of yarn!

    I recommend mixing various bits of worsted or aran weight yarns together for the playful stripes. DK weight would also work fine.
