The Queen Bee Leg Warmers are knit in the round using double pointed needles. The cuff is knit with needles two sizes smaller than the body of the warmers to ensure a snug, secure fit. The highly textured honeycomb lace pattern is easy to memorize and fast to knit.
This is an advanced beginner/intermediate level pattern which includes both written and charted directions. Pattern includes instructions for three sizes; 1-3 years, 4-6 years & 7-9 years.
