I need knitting help. Please!

So, I want to knit leg warmers to go with the hat I made last night. I have 16 inch size 5 circular needles and the yarn is worsted weight. Im having a hard time finding a pattern. Can someone help? Please and thank you.

16 inch might be too big.
This pattern calls for DK weight, which is slightly lighter than worsted, but it calls for 5s and is free.

It could if you didn't knit them in the round and sewed them up when you were finished. It would give you a seam though.

You might be able to use your 16" circular if you magic loop with them. I would try to explain it but I would just confuse myself, google it. I havent used a set of dpn's since figuring this out.
