Here the leg warmer is halfway done. It’s really nothing at this point but working around on circular needles or double points. I wouldn’t recommend a circular needle for this but if you did use one, I would go with a 9”. I have one and it’s my smallest one. LOL.
They were so fun to make and just beautiful. My daughter took one look at them and she had to have them. She loved the stirrups and wanted a pair for herself immediately. I told her that these were for my customers!! So if you’re interested in this pair, let me know.
Here is the finished product! Normally when I make a leg warmer, I do the bottom first especially when I’m creating the stirrup part. But I didn’t do that. I added the stirrup later by BO at least half of the stitches and then adding them on the next row using a Knit cast on, which is better than the Backwards loop cast on. That creates a sloppy ridge where you would need that end to be more sturdier since this is the part of the foot that will make contact with the floor in many cases.
