DID YOU KNOW?
Some beginner knitting patterns have an interesting history and these Chunky Slouchy Leg Warmers are no exception. Leg warmers were originally used as dancewear by ballet and other classic dancers. The warmers, worn on the lower legs, were designed to keep the leg muscles warm and to prevent cramping or other muscle injuries. Leg warmers vary in length and width (depending on the stretchiness of the material). In the early 1980s, leg warmers moved beyond the dancing world and became a fad among teenage girls. Boys, primarily residing in Berkeley, later adopted this fashion trend as well. The popularity of leg warmers spread throughout the country due to the influence of popular dance movies such as Flashdance and Fame, as well as the aerobics craze of the 1980s. Proving that fashion trends come in waves, leg warmers have once again surged in popularity. These days, you will often see women wearing jeans or leggings with leg warmers slouched at the top of riding or combat boots.
