Here’s a free loom knitting pattern for legwarmers. This cozy pair of legwarmers is an easy project that requires only one huge ball of yarn. It comes with a step by step video too!

Read below for the pattern or download these PDFs.

Accessibility statement: The loom knitting PDF pattern is accessible for people who have low vision, people who are print challenged, and people who use screen readers. I tested for screen readers using the read out loud function in Adobe Acrobat. It is accessible because I use all black sans serif font in 24 point size. There is no extra formatting, and I use one inch margins. All directions are fully written out, so the knitter does not need a knitting chart. The accompanying video has closed captioning.

Cast on

Do the chain cast on, or your preferred cast on.

First rib stitch border

Rounds 1 to 10: Knit 1, Purl 1, repeat to end. I used the e-wrap knit stitch.

Garter stitch border

Round 11: Knit entire round.

Round 12: Purl entire round.

Repeat rounds 11 and 12 until you’ve done a total of 46 rounds. Round 56 will be your last round.

Last rib stitch border

Rounds 57 to 66: Knit 1, Purl 1, repeat to end.

Bind off

Do the stretchy bind off. Remember these three words: down, up, behind. Weave in ends by weaving up the columns. Make the second legwarmer with the remaining yarn.
