Looks like I've made a knitting pattern

My baby  daughter has unique legs, so I had to make up with a leg warmer pattern. This is what I came up with.

Her chubby thighs are 12 inches around, but her dainty ankles are only 4 inches. This pattern was custom tailored to her so I'm not sure if it cold fit any other baby, but I wouldn't know how to go about changing it for different sizes.

Here goes. 

Yarn: Lion's Homespun, Lagoon color

Needles: US size 6 / 4.25mm

Gauge: 3 stitches per inch

Co 40 st

Work 2x2 rib for 1 inch

Work stockinette stitch for 1 inch

Next row * K 8, K2tog Repeat from * to end
*K 7, K2tog Repeat from * to end
*K 6, K2tog, Repeat from * to end

Work Stockinette stitch for 6 inches (length of calf)

Work 2x2 rib for 1 inch

Bind off leaving long tail to sew up seam.( I used the stretchy bind off).

. . . Sew up the seam. Knot the end. Cut off the tail. Make another, and then chase around designated baby until you can wrangle leg warmers on them!

Good Luck!
