“All this he saw, for one moment breathless and intense, vivid on the morning sky; and still, as he looked, he lived; and still, as he lived, he wondered.”
― Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows

This is a pattern for a pair of leg warmers, worked from the bottom up and in the round, using the Fair-Isle knitting technique.

Pop over to Gathered Sheep Yarns to find your favourite bundle of colour! Hand dyed nylon-free and non-superwash British yarns. This pattern works well with 1 55g skein plus any 5 mini-skein bundle ranging from very light to dark shades.

Sizing per age is approximate; please, use the gauge/circumference for best fit. You may make small adjustments by going down or up a needle size or two.
Included in the pattern is a coloured chart (like the sample) and a grey scale chart.
