Newborn leg warmers pattern

I really enjoy making newborn props! I don't know why, but it tends to be what I'm drawn to in this big ol' world of crochet!

The most recent new born prop I've been drawn too are little leg I made a pattern up to share with you!! 

I am hoping to get a picture if these cuties being used real shortly!! When I do, I will be sure and let you all see it!!! 

Ready for the pattern??? we go then!! 
Newborn leg warmers

Hook size "I"
Hook size "K"

Worsted weight yarn(medium thickness)

Make 2

Before beginning chain...leave a bit longer tail to use for stitching leg warmer closed.

Using hook size "I"
Ch 22; turn

Row 1; sc in 2nd ch from hook; sc in each ch across (21 sc)
Ch 2; turn.

Row 2; *Sk 2 st, 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc each in next stitch*
Repeat from * to * around when 3 stitches are left skip 2 st, 1 hdc in last stitch, ch 2; turn

Row 3; 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc each in top of dc from previous row and in each dc across. Hdc in last stitch. Ch 2; turn (6 shells across)

Repeat row 3 until piece measures 4 1/2" then go up 2 hook sizes. In my case I went up to a size "K" 6.50mm

Then continue repeating row 3 until piece measures 6"
(This will give the flare bottom)
Tie off. Weave in end.

Using long tail from beginning, fold leg warmer together with right sides together and stitch the seam closed. Stop 3 rows before the bottom. Or at the point it begins to flare. Tie off, weave in ends. Turn right side out. Add ribbon bow! Or embellish however you like!!

Measurements open and laying flat are:
Thigh: 5 1/2
Mid: 5 1/2
Ankle: 6 1/4
Length: 6

Absolutely beautiful 😍 I was just asked to make these for a friend of my mom, and I and beyond excited! I have a few questions, I noticed your pattern says worsted (med) weight yarn, but the diaper cover pattern said to use bulky yarn. Did you use medium for both & if so, did you do anything to alter the size for the diaper cover? Also about how wide/tall was the ribbon that you used? Thanks in advance for your help and thank you for this adorably wonderful (& free) pattern!
