Free pattern for Simple Tapered Leg Warmers

I've been recently frustrated with my crochet and needed an quick, easy pattern to get rid of some of my stash.  So I found a pair of leg warmers... Great!  Except my gauge was totally off because I almost always refuse to check it since it takes so much time and bothers me since i have to pull extra out of my skein....long story short....I ended up creating my own pattern.

**This pattern is for personal use only, and it took me several hours to create.  Please do not sell this pattern or the final product.  Thanks!

These leg warmers are a little tapered at the bottom because I wanted to make sure they didn't just come off or make their way under my heel.  The pattern is worked in rounds and my calves are about 14".  Ch 3 and Ch 2 count as a dc or hdc, EXCEPT for the last round.
