These stretchy legwarmers are a great accessory to be worn over leggings or tights. Made with sport weight wool yarn, they are really warm without being bulky on your legs. The legwarmers can be adjusted to be as wide as desired. Add less/more rows as in the pattern indicated until the legwarmers fit well around your legs. Keep in mind that the pattern is stretchy, so you will need to make them smaller as your leg circumference, otherwise they will end up being too loose on your legs.

Great to find leg warmers that are not bulky and will not visually add girth to the calves! She used an acrylic and wool light weight yarn for hers. Light weight wool is the key. Hey, if you are allergic to wool you probably wont have to worry about that because you will be wearing these over your tights or leggings, right? They look beautiful on her, especially with the boots. How about a pair in a bright pop of color for a cold and gray winter? Perhaps a bright pink?

I cant stand my feet being hot, so I usually have a real dilemma when it comes to indoor winter socks. Ive tried the Cabin Socks but these are way too hot for me. These leg warmers would still allow me to wear my cotton socks, but keep my calves warm. Brilliant solution for me. The ribbing at the top and bottom will keep them in place, too.

Remember when legwarmers were just for fashion. Now that I am a little older, a lot of times fashion comes second. These are not only fashionable they can be practical during the cold months.

I used to be a ballet dancer when I was a sprig, and leg warmers were more than just for fashion for us! They kept our calf muscles from cramping up, and I even recommended them to my cross country runner boyfriend!

I really could have used these a couple of weeks ago when it snowed. If I did not have to be out in the elements, I would not have been but as a responsible pet owner - you gotta do what cha gotta do. It is not often we get snow but these really would have been great. It is not likely to snow here again, but this is worth saving, just in case.

All of my socks are ankle socks, and on one foot I have to wear a trilok ankle brace for a damaged tendon, making long boots uncomfortable for me to wear. These leg warmers are easy to make, and they work up rather quickly. The DK yarn brings out the stitch pattern nicely and keeps the leg warmers from looking too bulky. They look great pulled up or scrunched up.

Okay I so have to have these Ribby Legwarmers! After reading the written pattern and looking at the picture tutorial. I can do this! LOL I love learning new things and with this pattern I learned a few new techniques to make my work look knitted. Love it, and it is easy to follow with some great pictures to help as well. I can't wait to make and wear these and maybe a few pair to give. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet ribby legwarmers pattern.

Wow, to look at those legwarmers, I would almost swear that they were knit. They definitely fooled me. These are a great fashion accessory for this time of the year to wear over leggings when going out into the chilly air whether to run errands or walk the dogs or just to go on a walk about.

I think I just found what gift I am going to make for a dear family member. She is always complaining that she has no knee socks and she's always cold. Aside from the knee socks, these legwarmers will work with everything in her wardrobe if I make them in a taupe or a creamy ivory color. She will treasure them, I am sure. It's a nice pattern that I know I'll be able to tackle easily! I don't know her calf size, but I have some idea, so I'll just wing it.
