The doll blankets did not take long. Another thing my granddaughter had asked for before Christmas was leg warmers. I finally found a pattern I thought she might like, and this is what I ended up with.
I must apologize for the poor pictures. I think I mentioned before that I am not the greatest picture taker, and I am not taking the time to take more to get the perfect picture right now. The bottom picture is actually the first one I took and the sun was shining in the window, but only covered part of the leg warmers. So then I closed the shade again to take the rest of the pictures, making for a dark room but better flash. I will explain the blue item tomorrow.
The pattern for the leg warmers is found here.
The pattern is for adult size using regular 4 ply yarn. I had plenty of the baby yarn left from the doll afghan so used that and a smaller crochet hook, and hope they are small enough to fit my granddaughter. If not, a ring can be attached to to the top and used for plastic bag holders, as per the suggestion of the person who made the others! Or maybe her older sister could wear them if she would be interested. The instructions do include how to measure the leg and adjust the pattern to fit it, but since my granddaughter lives 160 miles away, I decided to just go ahead and hope they fit. If not, I will make her another pair after measuring, providing she likes them, or even unraveling these and starting over.
