Crocheted Leg Warmer Pattern

I am looking for crochet pattern for legwarmers sized to fit children ages 7 and 3.

You don't need a pattern - Here's how I've done them in the past:

This "pattern" is worked from top to bottom, then from bottom to top & not "in the round" & not side-to side... This way you get "ribs" & it looks like it's knit & it stretches & has more give too!

To Begin:

Just decide how long you want the leg warmers to be (usually the length from the top of your foot to the bottom of your knee, (pretend that is 20 inches) then add half of that amount again so they can "slouch" (pretend that would be would be 10 inches)...

So if these were really your measurements, you'd need the leg warmers to be 30 inches long & this is what you'd do:

-- Starting Chain row: You'd make a chain that's 30 inches long...

-- Row 1: then do a half-double crochet across the length of the 30 inches of chain (1 half-double in each chain).

-- Row 2: next row, do a row of single crochet in only the back loop of each half-double crochet from the previous row.

-- Row 3: half-double crochet in the back loop only of the single crochet row

-- Repeat row 2, & row 3 (alternating single crochet in one row, then half-double crochet the next & so on, doing all stitches in the back loops ONLY of each previous row)

Keep trying this leg warmer on & when it' fits around your calf plus several inches you are done & can make the second one (be sure it's big enough to slip over your foot & ankle or shoe) then sew (or slip-stitch) together the beginning & ending rows to form a ring, using matching yarn to form a circle that looks like the top part of a sock.

* A Note: I didn't mention that you'll need to crochet 2 chains up before turning to start the next rows on the double crochet rows & do 1 chain before turning the single crotchet row. These measurements are only examples, you'll need to measure your own calves for exact figures.

Here's a bunch of Crocheted Leg Warmer Patterns you can purchase for under $5: ... _query=pattern+crocheted+leg+warmers

PS: You can also make some nice leg warmers with just granny squares. Use all one color yarn or go crazy with color. It works best if you add a crocheted ribbing on the top & bottom after sewing everything together.

* For extra stretch on any crocheted or knitted legwarmers, use clear elastic. you can either crochet over the elastic to hold it on or thread it in & out of the ribbing using clear stretch beading cord or super-thin clear or colored elastic (like bobbin elastic). I like to use the clear beading elastic & I use a large-eyed needle to weave it in & out of the tops & bottoms of the leg warmers. I prefer my leg warmers are crocheted out of super-wash wool so they keep me warm even in the coldest weather!

I want to make leg warmers for an average size woman. I have no measurements, and since it is a gift, I can't ask for them. Thanks.
