I'm a child of the 80's so legwarmers never really went out of style for me. Luckily, the rest of the world is catching up. A friend on Facebook asked me to knit her a pair, so I made these, nothing to them, just double seed / moss stitch. I put them up on Ravelry and my blog free and in English and Portuguese. I'm calling them Graceful Legwarmers (http://bibleapologetic.blogspot.com/2012/01/graceful-legwarmers-free-pattern.html), named after the friend I made them for.

The legwrmers look wonderful and the picture you've posted is even better. Very cool color and very sweet dog, too.

I always try to work my furbabies into the project photos. Hard when you're using a camera timer, but I got lucky with this one. Thanks all. Just thought there might be some more leggings lovers out there. It's a simple pattern, but even beginners need patterns.

Although I'm not a fan of leg warmers, these are lovely.

I confess that I've made myself the first of a pair--not because they're something I will EVER wear in public ('cause I won't), but because my legs get cold when I'm working in my home office.

So even if you don't find them fashionable, they're very practical, and that's a good thing, too!

Wow! Great color!

Question: on what sort of occasion would you wear leg warmers? And what would you wear with leg warmers? I'm trying to picture the entire outfit...

Any time! Home, shopping, anything casual, Bible study. I wear them with leggings, I like the denim leggings from Walmart, they are stretchy and thick. I didn't wear them for the pic because they are blue and there wasn't enough contrast with the purple, so I chose some ugly old gray ones I wear around the house.

Your legwarmers are lovely! I started knitting a pair for a friend, and I was just winging them in the round with a 2 inch ribbing and stocking stitch but I think I'm going to start them over using your pattern.

Thank you for posting this!
