pamo,
since you're starting knitting...to make legwarmers you don't need a pattern, just your leg! start with 5 double pointed needles. cast on probably around 36 stitches for a worsted weight yarn, and do 2x2 ribbing for a couple of inches, then stockinette stitch then 2x2 ribbing for the top cuff. along the way increase and decrease stitches according to your leg's measurements. (with the four double pointed needles you can try on your legwarmers every step of the way to make sure they're fitting well.)

actually doing it- so easy. reading knitting directions, not so fun.
