Cold weather is on its way. My mother in law is visiting from tropical India. She gets sooooooo cold in our temperate climate. Last time she was here, I crocheted her a pair of these classical legwarmers.
Now, she wants some more. So, I’ve been looking around to see what pattern I might want to use this time. She’s only 4’9″, so the pattern has to be flexible. Ballerinas certainly tend to have longer legs. Here’s what I’ve found:
