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.
