This is the knitting pattern for leg warmers that I created myself and have used lots of times for myself and friends!
It is very simple and quick to use and fits most teenager/adults. The instructions are easy to follow and require no special knitting skills other than knitting in the round. You can use stitch markers to assist with your decreases, but they are optional.
I have two pairs of these that I knitted myself, one in 100% merino wool thats perfect for very cold days, and one in a wool/acrylic blend which is much more breathable for slightly warmer studios. Keeping your lower leg warm at the start of class is so important in ballet as well as in yoga, pilates and other styles of dance, and these elegant leg warmers offer a perfect solution to make for yourself or give to your favourite dancer as a gift!
