Leg Warmers are Back!

I loved wearing leg warmers as a kid (yes, in the 80s!).

I have been so cold lately that I have been avoiding skirts and stockings. I wonder if I whip up a pair (or two) if I will be more inclined to don dressier clothes and stay warm at the same time.

Though I do see the fashion includes them being worn over jeans too. Hmmm…

 

I did a quick Pinterest search for leg warmers that has some fun and easy patterns to make.

Craftsy also did a round-up of knitted leg warmer patterns (I’m not sure if they are all free).

 

If I do make a pair, I like the ones that are secured around the foot so they don’t keep bunching up.

Which is your favourite?

It’s an innovative concept, however, have you ever had yarn wrap around you and somebody tug? Ouch! What about all those substance-assisted participants falling over. I think I’ll pass. What do you think – would you try it? Read the details here.  Photo Source: dailymail.co.uk
