Miss Munchkin has a birthday coming up next month – can you believe she will be eight? No way!
Pink Girly Leg Warmers
I showed her a Pinterest pin of Girly Leg Warmers and asked if those were something she would wear. Her response? “Oh yes! So cute!”
And here they are, completed with time to spare before I need to send her birthday package in the mail. I hope they fit!
I crocheted the leg warmers with Loops & Threads Charisma Baby yarn (Pink), a very soft yarn that I also used to make both Miss Munchkin and Miss Kitty ponchos Christmas 2012.
I am super pleased with them. In fact, I’m tempted to make myself a pair, albeit in a slightly different color!

This weekend I finished up two Christmas gifts for Miss Munchkin, a poncho for her and a matching poncho for Miss Kitty. I think Claire Bear makes a pretty good model, don’t you?
I hope the poncho for Miss Munchkin isn’t too big. I made it a size bigger than she currently wears, figuring she’s soon grow into it and it would last longer that way. But, if it is way too big, I can easily make another one just one size smaller.
I’m waiting on measurements for Liana so that I can make her one also, although I suspect she might wear close to the same size and what Claire Bear is wearing.
The child’s poncho pattern can be found on the Lion Brand website, their Pattern 70367AD Child ‘Coming Home’ Poncho. You do have to sign up on the Lion Brand site in order to view/download their patterns, but signing up is free. I downsized and modified the ‘Coming Home’ poncho pattern to make the bear poncho pattern.
