These leg warmers knit up fast and are cute to boot -- a great addition to your little one's dance ensemble!

Materials:

  • 1 skein Red Heart Shimmer in shade 1715 Hot Pink, or about 90 (100, 110, 120, 140, 160, 180) yards of medium weight yarn of your choice
  • 1 set size US 7 (4.5 mm) double pointed knitting needles, or long circular for magic loop

Gauge:

5 stitches and 7 rows per inch in Stockinette Stitch.

Size:

6-12 months (12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2-4 years, 4-6 years, 6-8 years, 8-10 years)

Calf circumference: 6.5 (7.5, 8, 9, 9, 9.5, 9.5) inches

Ankle circumference: 4 (5, 5.5, 6.5, 6.5, 7, 7) inches

Length: 7 (8, 8.5, 9.5, 10, 10.5, 11) inches

Note: Baby and child leg sizes are highly variable and there is no standard sizing for them. Please be sure to refer to the circumference and lengths given when you choose a size, not just the age. Also, length can be altered easily by changing the amount of Stockinette Stitch you do in the middle of the leg warmer, before you get to the ankle decreases.
