Leg Warmers For American Girl Doll

Valentine's Day is coming and if you would like to give a small gift to your child, who loves to play with American Girl Doll (18 inches tall), you could knit leg warmers. These leg warmers should not take you more than two hours to make. They are perfect for cold nights (your child's doll will not get sick) or for exercise (to be healthy is very good).

Enjoy.
