Baby leg warmers knitting pattern:
Color A: Holding 2 needles together cast on 32 sts or any other number multiple of 4 – for example 36 sts, 40 sts, 44 sts and so on. Remove one needle. Redistribute all stitches between 3 DPN. Join to knit in the round.
Rounds 1-2: [k2, slip next 2 sts holding the working yarn in back] – repeat till the end.
Round 3: knit all stitches around.
Rounds 4-6: [k2, p2] – repeat around. Do not cut the yarn.
Rounds 7-8: [slip next 2 sts holding the working yarn in back, k2] – repeat till the end.
Round 9: knit all stitches around.
How to carry the yarn up the wrong side of work: I usually twist the new color and the discarded color every 3-4 rounds. Never pull on your old yarn color too tightly.
Rounds 10-12: [p2, k2] – repeat around. Do not cut the yarn.
Repeat Rounds 1-6.
Grab Color A again and Repeat Round 7-12.
This way go on repeating Rounds 1-12 and alternating yarn color every 6 rounds until the leg warmer reaches 17 cm (make it shorter or longer). I knitted it total 54 rounds.
Bind off all stitches.
