Fuzzy Warmers: Knit Leg Warmers Pattern

Fuzzy Warmers: Knit Leg Warmers

by Elizabeth Mareno

They are as soft as a sweater with a comfortable stretch up to XL.
Rich, thick cables worked in bulky yarn make these leg warmers the perfect cold-weather accessory!

You can purchase an ad-free version on ETSY or my website.



Materials:
6.5 oz Bulky yarn (more on the mohair side) (Yarn used Yarn Bee “Tender Touch” *)
Size 10 dpns
Cable needle
(if needed- I just use an extra dpn)
Large eye needle for weaving ends
Gauge: 10stitches x 10row of ribbing = 4”x4”
I used a long-tail cast on. Use any CO that has stretch.





Pattern: 
CO 40. Disperse on 3 needles.
Row 1-14: k2, p2 ribbing
Row 15: k, increasing 2 stitches evenly (42)

Row 16: k, p, (k4, p, k, p) repeat to last 5, k4, p.
Row 17: Repeat row 16
Row 18: k, p, (c4f, p, k, p, c4b, p, k, p) repeat to last 12, c4f, p, k, p, c4b, p.
Repeat rows 16-18 until you have 18 cable twists. Do rows 16 & 17 once more.
Repeat row 15 once, decreasing 2 stitches evenly (40)
Finish with 14 rows k2, p2 ribbing. Bind off in ribbing.
Work a four-stitch front cable when you come to the direction C4F in a pattern:
1)Slip the next 2 stitches on the left-hand needle to the cable needle and hold the cable needle to the front of the work.  2) Knit 2 stitches from the left-hand needle. 3) Knit 2 stitches from the cable needle.
Work a four-stitch back cable when you come to the direction C4B in a pattern:
1)Slip the next 2 stitches on the left-hand needle to the cable needle and hold the cable needle to the back of the work. 2) Knit 2 stitches from the left-hand needle. 3)Knit 2 stitches from the cable needle.
