Little miss Zoe just started gymnastics class and her cute leotard outfit wouldn’t have been complete without a stylish set of crocheted leg warmers! A quick pattern that you can make bigger by increasing the starting chain and longer by continuing the middle rounds. In the picture my daughter is 18 months old and wears size 18-24 months.
– Worsted Weight Yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Raspberry.
– Size H Crochet hook
– Tapestry needle
Ch = Chain
SC = Single Crochet
Leg Warmers Pattern:
Chain 18, join to first chain to make a chain circle, SC in each stitch around
Do not join continue in rounds
Round 2: SC + chain 1+ SC, skip a stitch, SC + chain 1 + SC in next, repeat around.
Round 3-8: working in the spaces between each SC/ch 1/SC cluster, SC + chain 1+ SC, skip to next space, SC + chain 1 + SC in next, repeat around.
(continue pattern above for longer leggings)
Round 9: SC in each stitch (not chains) (18 SC)
Round 10: in next stitch make 3 hdc, skip stitch, 3 hdc, repeat around (6 scallops)
Round 11: Join yarn to first row (starting chain row). Repeat round 10 to make scalloped edge.
