Welcome to my first ever post for Marshco! (Cue the applause and excited music!) This has been a long time in the making for me so I’m just crazy excited to jump in and spread some crochet love😄
My inspiration for this lovely little pattern is my 4 year old niece. She recently started up dance and just so happens to be a princess 👑
Basically I wanted to make something that stands out as much as her princess personality does! So immediately I pulled out all my pink yarn because, well, princess pink ya know? I absolutely love love love how these little warmers turned out and can’t wait to see her try them on.
CROCHET LEG WARMERS FREE PATTERN!
This pattern can be made into any size you need simply by adjusting the cuff length.
To determine the length, measure the width of the top of your calf. This is how long your cuff should be. Easy enough, right?
-Hook size 5.0 mm
-1 Skein of Sweet Roll in any color your heart desires (If you want the same as in my pictures it’s Guava Pop! Seriously, Sweet Roll acrylic yarn has the cutest names eva!)
FPDC (Front Post Double Crochet) – Insert hook around front post instead of the top loop.
BPDC (Back Post Double Crochet) – Insert hook around back post instead of the top loop.
SL ST – Slip Stitch to join the row
SCD – Single Crochet Decrease
Row 1- Make a foundation chain of 11
Row2- In 2nd loop from hook sc and sc all the way across, ch 1 and turn. (10)
Row3- In back loop only, sc across, ch 1 and turn (10)
Row 4- Repeat row 3 until it measures the width of your calf your previously measured.
Row 5- Fold the cuff in half and sl st together, ch 1 then, begining to crochet in the round, dc an even amount around and sl st together. For my child version I ended up with 32 dc and my adult version was 48 dc.
Row 6- Ch 2, Fpdc around 1st 2 dc, bpdc around next 3, Fpdc around next 3, sk next 3 st, fpth around next 3, working in the stitchs you skipped, fpth around 1st skipped dc (working right to left), working forwards again fpth around next 3 st, bpdc around next 3. Fpdc around the remaining stitches and s lst to join.
Row 7- Ch 2, fpdc around 1st 2 st, bpdc around next 3, fpdc around next 12 being careful not to twist the cable in the process, bpdc around 3, fpdc around remaining and slst to join.
Row 8- Ch 2, Fpdc around 1st dc, bpdc around 3, sk next 3, fpth around 3, working in the 3 sk st fpth IN FRONT ( working right to left ), working forward, sk 3 and fpth around next 3, working in the 3 sk st, fpth IN FRONT, bpdc around 3. Fpdc around the remaining stitches and sl st to join.
Row 9- Ch 2, fpdc around 1st 2 st, bpdc around next 3, fpdc around next 12 being careful again not to twist the cable, bpdc around 3, fpdc around remaining and slst to join.
Row 10- (25 for children, 50 for adults. Basically make it as tall as you need it to be a comfortable leg warmer.) Repeat rows 6 through 9 to create the center portion of your leg warmer.
Finishing Bottom Row- Ch 1, sc 2, fpsc around 3, sc 2, scd, sc 2, scd, sc 2, scd, fpsc around 3, sc around remaining and sl st to join.
*Ch 1, sc around, sl st to join.* Repeat this row 4 times.
