LEG WARMERS:
Worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Cast on 40 stitches on double pointed needles size 8 mm / US 11 with Eskimo. Work rib knit 2/purl 2. When piece measures 4 cm / 1½'', knit 1 round while decreasing 4 stitches evenly = 36 stitches. Continue with SEED STITCH - see explanation above. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Continue with seed stitch until piece measures 32 cm / 12½''. Knit 1 round while increasing 4 stitches evenly = 40 stitches. Work rib knit 2/purl 2 for 4 cm / 1½'', then bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

Knit another leg warmer the same way.
