children's sizes 2 (4) (6) (8)
measure your child's leg from just below the knee to just below the ankle bone. this will be the length of your finished leg warmer.
cast on 30 (32) (34) (36) stitches and divide evenly between 3 needles. join and begin knitting in round in 1 x 1 rib pattern until you reach your child's leg measurement. knit the next 3 rows holding the elastic thread with your yarn, continuing the 1 x 1 rib pattern. continue without the elastic thread for another 1.5 inches.
bind off loosely, weave in ends and fold over the last 1.5 inches you knit and sew on buttons.
work as directed above until you reach your child's leg measurement then bind off loosely. make a single crochet drawstring as long as you would like and thread through your leg warmer approx. 1.5 inches from the top. this is cute tied in the front or on the side!
