Granny Stripe Legwarmers

Oh so cute granny wear!
I'm loving these...
Granny Stripe Legwarmers!
Wear them tied above the knee...
Or scrunched down for a casual look.
These are super simple to make. 
And could match any outfit.
Maybe add pom poms for extra cuteness!
They look adorable with dresses and could be paired perfectly with skinny jeans.

So go ahead, be brave. 
Add some granny wear to your fall wardrobe.
Here's the how to...

Size: This pattern is written to fit approximately ages 7/8.
(Sizes may be adjusted up or down by simply measuring around the child's leg above the knee. Make your starting chain about an inch shorter than the measurement. The initial chain must be devisable by 3 plus 1. Then work the pattern adding or subtracting stitches to achieve the desired size. For length measure from above the knee to the ankle. Work the pattern until the desired length is achieved.)

Join all rounds.
Do not turn after rounds.


Starting out: Ch 40


Row 1: Work 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Continue working sc in each ch st to end. Join w/ sl st in 1st sc. You will now be working in rounds. (39sc)

Rnd 2: Sl St in each dc of shell into sp between first two shells. Work Beginning Shell. {Work Shell in space between next shell.} Repeat between {} to end. Join in top of ch 3. (13Shells)

Cluster and Stripe Legwarmers

Make these super cute cluster and stripe legwarmers just in time for fall! They look adorable with a denim skirt and would be perfect for even colder days with tights or leggings underneath.

SIZE: This pattern is written to fit approximately ages 3-5.

Be sure the starting chain ends with an odd number. Then work the pattern adding or subtracting stitches to achieve the desired size. For length measure from above the knee to the ankle. Work the pattern until the desired length is achieved.)

Yarn over and draw through all three loops on hook. Ch1.} Repeat {} around. Join in top of the first 2dc cluster. Fasten off. (17 2dc clusters complete)
Rnd 2: Join new color in last ch1 stitch then sc in same ch1 space. {Ch2 then sc in the next ch1 space.} Repeat {} around. End rnd w/ ch2 then join w/ sl st in beginning ch2 sp. Fasten off. (17 ch2 spaces)
Rnd 3: Join new color in the beginning ch2 sp of last rnd. Work beginning cluster in same stitch as join. Ch 1. {Work cluster, ch1 in the next ch 2 sp.} Repeat {} around. Join w/ sl st in top of beginning cluster. Fasten off. (17 clusters)
Round 4 -28: Repeat round 2 for even rounds. Repeat round 3 for odd rounds.
Round 29: Repeat rnd 3. DO NOT FASTEN OFF.
Rnd 30: Ch 1. {Sc in next ch1 sp then sc in top of cluster.} Repeat {} around. Join in top of first sc. (34sc) Fasten off.
