Crocheted Leg Warmers

My mom requested a pair of leg warmers.  A few years ago they were everywhere but now we can't find them anywhere.

So, I looked up a pattern and made her a pair.  You can find the pattern HERE.

(note:  this pattern is for size 9-11)

I crocheted while watching TV.  I made one per evening.  My mom is only 4'10" so I didn't have to make them very tall.  She also wanted to be able to pull her pant-leg down over them so I didn't make them so tall that they would get scrunchy.

Here is a picture of Mom modeling her leg warmers.  She wasn't thrilled, but I insisted it was a must for my blog!

As the pattern says, you can make them as tall as you want.  As I noted above, just be careful about the size.  You'll have to adjust for the individual.  There's no way I could get one of this size on my leg!  lol

These were fun to make.  It was even sweeter because I knew they were for my mom.

Please check out my side bar to see the great parties I'll be linking up to!


  1. They're pretty. You are so good at these things. Your girls are so fortunate to have a mother that can do much.

  2. I like those a lot! The stitches look way good too. I should try it out...this Utah weather is making me freezing!

  3. What a nice gift, and they look lovely! I may have to make some for myself, I had some store-bought legwarmers (from when you could find them everywhere, LOL), but the elastic has lost its stretch.

  4. Nice! I really need to knit some leg warmers, since my kids are crazy skirt wearers in the middle of winter!

    Thank you for joining us at Fibers on Friday this week. I hope to see you back again!

  5. You know, you have a good point. Now that I think about it, I haven't seen leg warmers in awhile.

    I've seen leggings and thermals and even knee high socks, but not the leg warmers. I'm sure they'll be back again eventually, lol!


I love reading your comments!
