Tweedy Leg Warmers

Lion Brand® Sock-EaseTM


28 sts + 36 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in K6, p2 Rib, unstretched.

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


K1, p1 Rib (worked in the round, over an even number of sts)
Rnd 1:
*K1, p1, rep from * around.
Rep Rnd 1 for K1, p1 Rib.

K6, p2 Rib (worked in the round, multiple of 8 sts)
Rnd 1:
K3, p2, *k6, p2, rep from * around to last 3 sts, k3.
Rep Rnd 1 for K6, p2 Rib.


1. Leg Warmers are meant to fit with negative ease (Leg Warmer circumference should be less than body measurement) for a snug fit.
2. Leg Warmers are worked from top down for ease in adjusting the size. After a few rounds have been worked, slip sts onto a spare length of yarn or a long circular needle and test the fit by sliding the piece up your leg. Change to larger or smaller double pointed needles to achieve the desired fit.
3. If desired, use a spare knitting needle one or two sizes larger to cast on and bind off.

LEG WARMERS (make 2)
Beg at top edge, loosely cast on 112 (128) sts. Divide sts onto 3 double pointed needles and join, being careful not to twist. Place marker for beg of rnd.
Work in K1, p1 Rib for 2 in. (5 cm).
Work in K6, p2 Rib for 12 rnds.
Next Rnd: K2tog, work in K6, p2 Rib as established to last 2 sts, k2tog.
Rep last 13 rnds until 64 (80) sts remain, then work even (if piece is not long enough) in K6, p2 Rib until piece measures about 32 in. (81.5 cm) from beg.
Change to K1, p1 Rib and work for 4 in. (10 cm). Bind off loosely.

Weave in ends.
