Great Grey Leg Warmers

I love winter knit projects and I am loving this pattern!  These Grey-Grey Legwarmers are to die for.

 

For my legwarmers, I cast on 56 stitches since I’m using worsted weight yarn.  I love the halo that the angora provides with this yarn (stashed yarn).  The legwarmers are 4.5 inches wide, unblocked.  I used US #8 needles for the first repeat of the chart, US #9 with 2nd repeat, and US #10 for 3rd and 4rth repeat. I used US #8’s for top ribbing and bound off in pattern with US #9’s.  My finished length is 20 inches.  These were meant to be slouchy and are super cute!  

These are darling and I am starting more for Christmas presents.  I will be using Rimu for my next pair.  Stay tuned, I can't wait to share my next project with you!

Love the legwarmers using worsted weight. How much yarn does it take and which yarn would be the best?
