I love this pattern for the Knee High Legwarmers! The pattern here on this page is great and easy to follow. There are quite a bit of repeats of rows in this pattern that is confusing people. I'm going to give this a try and see if I can make them just as written. I'm hoping after a year the pattern is fixed. ?? I love the colors in this yarn and they are so bright and bold at the same time. These will be great for the cold winter days and nights. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

Row 19 is row 7 so how can row 20 be row 6 again. Should it not 4-7 not 6-9

how would i make these 6 inches longer? Finally found the perfect pattern, and of course, it ends up being too short, by quite a bit. I'm a novice crocheter, and i know i have to add a handful of rows, but i don't know where would be best, can anyone help?

Rounds 56-67 Repeat Rounds 4-7 Twice - is this right? So Round 56 would be rounds 4,5,6,7,4,5,6,7???? Then the following rounds the same? Too long for the pattern? Please help? )

Round 56 = round 4 57 = 5 58 = 6 59 = 7 and so on. Hope this helps! )

I'm very confused by this pattern. Row 20 - 51 says repeat Rounds 6-9 for 8 times, but round 8 says Round 8-11 Repeat rounds 4-7. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Round 8 equals round 4. So round 20 should be like round 6. 21 like 7. 22 like 4. And 23 like 5. Hope this is clear. )

On round 13 when you finish making 65 chains around is there supposed to be a huge space between there and slip stitching to the beginning chain? Causing it to fold over?

How can I lengthen this pattern? Where is the best spots?

Hmm the copy and paste method works just fine for us. You can also get this pattern on the Red Heart web site and print from there if that's easier. Thanks, editors at AllFreeCrochet

how can I print these directions? I've tried to copy and paste into word, but its just a mess. Any ideas?

Here's what I do to print, it may work for you: Highlight with your mouse what you would like to print. RIGHT click on the highlighted text and a box will pop up, select PRINT PREVIEW a screen will pop up, then at the top change from AS LAID OUT ON SCREEN to AS SELECTED ON SCREEN. Click print and it should work out fine. Hope this helps.
