  • Unfortunately this doesn’t help those of us who can’t knit…


  • My daughter will love these for her dance lessons.


  • looking great and awesome


  • This is brilliant! My daughter’s dance teacher keeps suggesting that one of the mum’s should knit leg warmers for all the kids. What a great pattern!


  • This is so 80s! Brings back memories. I saw a craft project not long ago that used sleeves from old jumpers used as leg warmers. Just cut them off and sew them up so they don’t fray. Not a bad idea


  • You could use them as mittens also


  • My mum use to be able to whip these up. I can only throw a scarf together :/


  • Mum will have to make these for my daughter.


  • Awesome! I have one pair but they were expensive ( lovely though!) and I’ve always wanted to get into knitting. The instructions don’t make much sense so it sounds hard, but I’m going to make these a goal! Thanks for sharing:D


  • cannot believe these babies have made a comeback

    • this keeps popping up and i keep singing safety dance!


  • Thank you for sharing this


  • haha haven’t seen these since the 80’s


  • These are a blast from the past! Might whip up a pair for Miss this year


  • I need to make some for bike riding in winter


  • Thankyou so much, I have been on the look out for a knitting pattern for leg warmers :-)
