Ok I have been working on these things forever it seems. Only because I wouldn't work on them for days at time. I am sure I could have had them done quicker.

These are for my 70 yr old G-ma who is now in a nursing home. She is always cold and complains they keep it downright frigid in there :roflhard: So I made her legwarmers and my mom made her a fleece house coat.

So here they are. I got the pattern here:

I didn't do the stripes... and didn't quite make them as long as she did :??

I can't remember the yarn :oops: its very inexpensive yarn I got at Walmart on size 8 needles done in k2p2 pattern.

Those are great!! My grandmother always complains about how cold it is in her nursing home, too- even though she's in a private room with the heat turned up to 80! I guess that internal thermostat doesn't work the same when you are 90! I'm sure your grandmother will love them. :thumbsup:

Thanks everyone!

I doubt she will realize they are from "ME" but I know she will love them. She loves leg warmers but they are not really available anymore.

Hi, I opened the extreme site for legwarmers does it matter what type of yarn is used? It doesn't give you a gauge so I'm confused. The gauge just might me 5sts to an inch then how many sts to cast on 50 or 40 or 60 it's getting confusing. I just want something fast and easy to knit before Christmas.
Thank you

any more legwarmer patterns that use only straight needles?

I am having a hard time with a legwrmr patt that uses dpn and circulars.
