Hand Knitted Leg Warmers for Baby


The hand knitted leg warmers for a baby are a genius idea! Babies who are starting to crawl can wear gorgeous bright hued leg warmers and protect their soft knees. Changing diapers on a onesie is easy peasy wearing these snugly fit leg warmers.

Put on a pair of pants and socks before putting on the leg warmers when you take your baby for a walk so as not to get cold ankles.

Knitting these is super easy and you can alter the pattern as per your baby’s length and weight.

Knitting Pattern:

Using any fingering or sock yarn, and with size 2 circular needles and a gauge of one inch for 7-8 stitches, cast on 42 stitches. Join to work in the round. Knit 1, purl 1 and work the ribbing for 5 rounds. Then continue in stockinette stitch till the leg warmers are 25 cm long. Work the knit1, purl 1 ribbing again for 5 rounds. Bind off using the Elizabeth Zimmerman’s sewn bind-off for a stretchy edge.

Add elastic to your leg warmers if you want them to fit snugly on your baby’s legs.
