Traditional Crochet Leg Warmers

Traditional Crochet Leg Warmers

Slip your feet into these Traditional Crochet Leg Warmers this winter to stay warm without sacrificing a bit of style. Worsted weight yarn is used to work up this free crochet pattern. Feel free to re-create the funky striped design shown here, or simply use a single color of yarn. This crochet leg warmer pattern includes directions on how to crochet these in a variety of sizes, so you can make a pair for everyone in your family.

Easy

Crochet HookI/9 or 5.5 mm hook

Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)

MATERIALS:

  • Worsted Weight Yarn in 4 colors
    • Model shown in Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn Neons
  • Crochet Hook: I/5.5 mm
  • Yarn Needle

SIZE:
Instructions are written in sizes 0-6 mo, with 6-12 mo, toddler, child/teen, women’s medium, women’s large in parenthesis. Example: 1 (2, 3, 4, 5, 6) Child/teen and women’s small cross over a bit here. You can just make them the length necessary to fit how tall the individual is.

For a more precise fit, if you have your model to measure, you can take the leg measurement and use this formula: (leg measurement – 1”) x 4 = base chain. Example: leg measurement of 9” would look like this. (9-1) x 4 = 32. Base chain for a 9” leg is 32 chains.

Circumference measurements for the pattern listed sizes are as follows 6” (7”, 8”, 10”, 12”, 14”)

Recommended lengths for legwarmers: 6”, (9”, 9”, 11”, 14”, 14”). The first two sizes are designed to go above the knee. If you want them below the knee as on my youngest in the photographs then you will need to make them shorter than the recommended measurements.
Recommended lengths for legwarmers (toddler size on up): 5” for all sizes.

GAUGE:
8 sc x 8 rows = 2" square

NOTES:
Ch 2 counts as a hdc stitch.
Ch 3 counts as a dc stitch.
When working the tc stitches, they are worked in the front of dc stitches. There should always be a gap or space between te tc stitch and the dc stitches, like this:

Traditional Crochet Leg Warmers

The tc stitches will be a little shorter than the space there is to work them. This is to help create some tension in the legwarmer so that it holds to the leg a little better. Don’t be afraid if these stitches seem to pull your work closer together. When you wear the legwarmers they will stretch.

I don’t recommend carrying your colors in this pattern. With the open spaces they have a chance to show through.
