I was recently approached by Supertramp Ltd who asked me to design a free knitted leg warmer pattern.
This pattern is for a fundraising event launched this week – ‘Get knitting for Cystic Fibrosis Trust’. Knitters can take up their needles and knit leg warmers to help to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Trust! what a fantastic idea! The knitted leg warmers will be used for trampolinists. Knitted leg warmers are great for garden trampolinists as they help keep their ankles warm in the cooler months. They can’t be made of man made fibres because they can create too much static when bouncing.
I chose a chunky yarn and a pattern suitable for knitters of any experience. You don’t have to use the yarn specified, any chunky weight yarn will work just as well. The leg warmers only use 150g of chunky yarn and knit up very quickly (I completed one pair in only one evening!). The pattern is already very popular and has had over 700 downloads since I first published the pattern on my website in October 2012. You can download the free knitted leg warmer pattern by clicking on the box below, or via my ravelry pattern store for FREE!
I have now included a DK version of this pattern on the download for those of you who requested a DK pattern to knit leg warmers from your yarn stash.
Please contact Supertramp directly if you require a paper version sending via post.
The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the UK’s only national charity dealing with all aspects of CF. Each week five babies are born with CF and two young lives are lost.
Since 1964, it has supported excellence in research and clinical care, as well as providing practical support and advice to people and their families.
I hope that all you fab knitting enthusiasts will pick up your needles and knit up some of these leg warmers using my free pattern to raise funds for Get knitting for Cystic Fibrosis Trust, such an important charity It would be great if you could spread the word to your local knitting groups and knitting shops and get them involved too!
