My yarn stash had an abundance of pink, which sent me looking for pink projects in order to clear space for new yarn. I decided that a toddler friend I enjoy testing hats out on needed a pair of leg warmers to go with all those hats. This pattern will work with any light or medium weight yarn you’ve got in your stash!
