Ribbed Anklewarmers

Minty made legwarmers, and modeled them peeking out from under her jeans. Too cute. I designed these to be trim and short, thus fitting nicely under a pair of jeans or other pants. Of course, you could always make them longer.

Yarn: Slightly more than 100 yds of worsted weight wool or wool-acrylic blend. I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease.
Needles: Size 7 dpns or 40-inch circular.
Gauge: About 5.5 sts per inch, in unstretched ribbing.
Size: About 6.5 inches long and 8 inches around, with rib relaxed. One size fits most ankles. If you want to change, CO more or fewer sts in multiples of 4.

3x1 ribbing pattern stitch: *K3, p1, rep from * around.

CO 44 sts. Join and knit first 2 rnds plain. Begin patt st. Work until piece meas about 6 inches. K next 2 rnds plain. BO very loosely. Make another.
