GAUGE:

16 sts + 24 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

1. Legwarmers are worked in a stripe pattern of 2 rnds each with A and B alternately.
2. Cast on with either A or B as desired. For fun, we cast on one Leg Warmer with A and one with B.
3. Carry unused color up WS of work.
4. St st edges of Leg Warmers are designed to roll naturally to the right side.

LEG WARMERS (make 2)
With A or B as desired, cast on 44 sts. Divide sts evenly onto 4 double pointed needles. Place marker for beg of rnd. Being careful not to twist sts, join by working first st on left hand needle with working yarn from right hand needle.
Work in St st in the rnd (k every rnd), working 2 rnds with each color until piece measures about 16 in. (40.5 cm) from beg.
Bind off.

FINISHING
Weave in ends.

Lexi Leg Warmers Reviewed by Pamela Leigh on 2013-12-23 ****
These are super easy to make, and turn out so cute. This was my first time of knitting stripes in the round. Took me a bit to get the hang of not carrying the alternating color too tight. But, I think I've got the hang of it now. This was a great project to learn/practice that skill.
