‘Cozy’ Cable Leg Warmers | Knit Pattern

Took a break from making boot cuffs & finally used the extra yarn to create leg warmers! You can create any of my boot cuff patterns into leg warmers by knitting more rounds 🙂

I made these for myself ! And I can not wait to wear them – Great for yoga & lounging, will look great with boots as well!

Pattern Notes: If you need to adjust the stitch count, you will have to alter the pattern. To create smaller boot cuffs, you can take a purl stitch out of the pattern and if you need a bigger cuff add stitches to the knit 4 section.

kclwOk, I’m pretty much obsessed with these boot cuffs. They are oh so cozy and I have been wearing them all the time. I love wearing them with my yoga leggings to keep me warm. Great to wear for bowling as well 🙂

I designed this pattern so that the cable appears on opposite sides of the leg warmers so if you need assistance deciding how to adapt this pattern for your supplies don’t hesitate to ask! I respond to questions on here as well as my YouTube, Ravelry & Facebook.

Did I mention how obsessed I am with these leg warmers???? I can’t wait to make more…

  1. Hi, I’m new to knitting and really would like to knit these for my 5 year old whose leg circumference is 8-8.5inches. How do I adjust the number of cast on stitches?
