Leg Warmers        

This pattern is written for baby leg warmers but can easily be made for any size, simply add or decrease the amount of stitches in the beginning chain to the circumference of the ankle for whom its being made.

Materials:

5.0 crochet hook
Medium weight (4) yarn (I used Simply Soft for the white edged one and Vanna’s Choice for the brown edged one)

Abbreviations:

ch- chain
sc- single crochet
hdc- half double crochet
sl/st- slip stitch

Pattern:

Chain 24 (or whatever the circumference of the ankle is plus 3-4 stitches more).   Join together with slip-stitch (sl/st) (be sure good side is facing out)

Rw 2-6  Chain 1, skip next stitch, sc in remaining stitches, last sc (#24) in the space where you skipped at beginning of row, join together with s/s, repeat until row 6 (or however long you want the ankle band to be)

Rw 7-18 chain 1, skip next stitch, hdc in remaining stitches, last hdc (#24) in the space where you skipped at beginning of row, join together with sl/st, repeat until row 18 (or for however long you want the body of the leg warmer to be)

Rw 19-24 chain 1, skip next stitch, sc in remaining stitches, last sc (#24) in the space where you skipped at beginning of row, join together with sl/st, repeat until row 24 (or for however long you want calf band to be).  Fasten off, and sew in tail.

Complete by sewing in tail at the beginning of your work.

I did one color for the ankle and calf bands/cuffs and alternated colors (2 rows of each) for the body of the warmer.

For adults:

follow same directions but start with 30 (or more) stitches and do 12 rows of sc for ankle band, 18 rows of dc for body, and 5 rows of sc for calf band.
