I love to wear capri leggings to spinning and yoga, but I also live in Canada, so slim fitting tall legwarmers were definitely needed to get to the studio and back. Legwarmers should fit snugly around ankles and knees, but also stretch easily over the rest of the leg. I chose textures that would hug close to the ankle, but also stretch to accomodate cycler’s calves. The combined 2 by 2 ribbing and traditional pleated fisherman’s sweater pattern resulted in really stretchy, very easy legwarmers. As a result, size and gauge should not be major concerns.
This pattern is now available for sale at my ravelry store.
