Hope everyone who is affected by the winter storm is fine. The “bomb cyclone” that caused an extreme and rapid temperature drop last week was so terrible and life threatening. No, I wasn’t affected (thank god) but if I would have, this pair of cable knit leg warmers will be in very good use to at least keep my legs warm even if I am at indoor. Please grab the free knitting pattern to knit them for yourself or for your loved ones.
I knitted this pair of leg warmers a while ago and I wore them during my winter vacation in Japan. I received lots of compliments from passersby asking where I bought this stylish ombre effect cable knit leg warmers from. I chuckled and feel proud of myself to have designed and knitted them.
It doesn’t take very long to complete this pair of leg warmers, at least they are so much faster than a pullover knit project. A ball of Lion Brand Scarfie is all the yarn you need, you will need to match the ombre tone for both pieces of the leg warmers but the effort is rewarding after they are done. If you find it troublesome, you can always use other equivalent yarn to knit.
The leg warmers are knitted in round with 5.5mm circular needle, you do not need to do any seaming after completed the knitting part. However, there is some important note in the pattern that you need to pay attention at, especially when there is a cable stitch at between the last stitch of previous round and firs stitch on next round. No worry, I have that explained clearly and if you still have difficulty in understanding, please let me know.
