Baby Leg Warmers

OK.. So Now you are asking......"What did this Crazy Grandma knit this time?"
Well... They are Baby Leg Warmers Of Course !!!!
April asked me to make a pair ..so HERE they are !! I made two pairs!!!
I had to make the orange ones to go with Sami's Pumpkin Hat... :)
I can't Wait to see her in them.... LOL
I didn't have a pattern for them.. I just casted on so many stitches (in the round) with a # 4 needle ..I think there were 36.. Then I K1,P1 until I got the length I wanted.. In the beginning I worked about 1 and 1/2 inches then increased the needle size to a #5..... Then I worked another 2 and 1/2 inches and increased to a size 7 or 8 this way they got wider at the top so they will fit her chubby little legs... LOL

These are great! I'm going to have to work some up for my girls ;)

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my MS3 - I was starting to languish in no mans land and contemplating throwing in the towel. Your comment has inspired me to give it a little more time. Hopefully I can get to the wing tonight and that will respark my interest further.

You are an excellent Grandma! Sweet Sam will never be cold ;)

Those are so cute. I like the pink ones, it is of course my favorite color.

I also liked your knitting chicken picture. Can I borrow it sometime for my blog?

I especially love the orange and white ones!
What size yarn did you use? I assume a 3 or 4 ply worsted weight.

I love baby leg warmers! I'm searching for a pattern to make them, I am just a beginning knitter, so making my own is a little out of my league!

Yours are super cute!
