Cable Leg Warmer Knitting Pattern

This cable leg warmer is knitted pretty fast. I used worsted weight yarn and size US 8 / 5 mm knitting needles. For the front cable pattern, I used woven ties cable pattern from here. And for the back I only use simple robe cable pattern (with c8f for every 12 rows).
