Leg Warmers Crochet Pattern (A Leg-Up Leg Warmers)
I really like these crocheted leg warmers and had so much fun designing them. The crochet technique used makes them quite stretchy, so you can wear them up tall, or scrunched down slouchy-style. They are tapered at the bottom for a lovely fit. Instructions come in two sizes: S/M and L/XL.
Thank you for checking out my crocheted leg warmers!
This crochet pattern for leg warmers is suitable for an INTERMEDIATE crocheter. It uses standard US English crochet terminology. It has been tested for clarity and accuracy by a professional crochet designer. In addition, it contains step-by-step how-to photos. I am confident this pattern will make for a happy crochet experience (and very nice leg warmers).
These leg warmers are worked in the round utilizing crochet chains and single crochet stitches. The crochet chains are then laddered up (like making chains from chains) to give the leg warmers their crochet cable effect. This technique is a variation on Jacobs Ladder and it is not difficult.
I am available to answer questions, should you have any.
Thanks again for stopping by.

I absolutely love to crochet! My mother taught me how when I was five years old, and it occupied a lot of my childhood.
It was during my time living in Bulgaria, as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer, that I first began to dream about writing and publishing my own crochet patterns.
As the years passed, work became my main focus, but I continued to dream about becoming a crochet designer and I collected inspiration from the many different places I was working in and traveling to: Bulgaria, Boston, Germany, Canada, Ireland (to name a few).
It was the birth of my son, ultimately, that finally gave me the opportunity to realize my dream. When my son was a baby, I wrote and published two crochet books (Painted Jute Rugs, Annie’s Attic, 2010 & Elegant Beaded Bags, Leisure Arts, 2013).
When my son began school my focus shifted to selling patterns online. I have been having the absolute time of my life -- crocheting, imagining crochet, writing about crochet, and engaging with many amazing crochet-lovers in online communities!
Home is now Toronto in Canada.
Thanks for reading my profile. I hope you will find a design in my shop that inspires you (the way it did me) to stitch up something beautiful.
