Quick and basic leg warmers

It’s not too early to be thinking fall weather right?! Well my daughter doesn’t think so. She asked me for a pair of thick, tight, and soft leg warmers. Luckily I already had the yarn at home so I made her these last night.
These were made for a 16yr old girl so to make longer, if needed, add extra rows past row 18.
They work up super quick and are toasty warm. I crocheted them tapered and snug, as crochet does and will stretch out on you. She thinks they’re perfect!
