Remember when I posted this picture of my Baby at 6 months?
Well, here is how to make the knit leg warmers! I've seen tons of simple tutorials on how to make leg warmers out of socks, but of course as it's now spring, I couldn't find any cute knee highs in the women's section, so I took matters into my own hands to make lightweight leg warmers :)
First off, measure those adorable chunky legs at the thigh and at the ankle and grab how long you want them to be.
Draw a straight line for the length. At the top draw a line that is HALF the thigh measurement. At the bottom draw a line that is HALF the ankle measurement. Connect the lines and this is your pattern. (make sure to cut the right way so that the leg warmers stretch!)
Cut two of the pattern
Right sides together, match up the long edges and sew.
Fold up a quarter inch on the top and bottom and hem. I pulled the fabric tight as I went so the thread would stretch with it.
Quick and easy!
