Toddler Leg Warmers

So I had a few requests from people for a pair of leg warmers. I found quite a few patterns online that were super cute. Unfortunately none of them fit quite the way I needed them to so I used my sweet little daughter as a source of measurement and came up with this simple but super cute pattern.

Please keep in mind this is the one and only pattern that I’ve written on my own so it may not be written out the best but I certainly gave it my best shot. If you like it please feel free to try it out and let me know what you think. Feel free to sell any finished items but please be kind and link back to this blog for the pattern.

Supplies:

H size crochet hook

Worsted Weight yarn I used Caron Simply Soft in White

Yarn needle for sewing in the ends

Abbreviations:

ch – chain

sc – single crochet

hdc – half double crochet

BLO – Back Loop Only

FL – Front Loop

hdc2tog – half double crochet 2 together

sc2tog – single crochet 2 together

sl st – slip stitch

st – stitch

When joining rounds always sl st into first st of round, not in the ch space. And each round begins with your first st going into the same st you made your ch 2/ch 1

Finished Size:

They come out to about 8 inches around at the top (under the knee),  about 6 inches long (from under knee to ankle) and about 6 1/2 inches around at the bottom (at the ankle)

These were made using my daughter for the measurements but you could easily make them to any measurements you want by adding or deleting stitches/rows.

These will fit on bare legs or over tights. If you’d like them to go over pants you can just go up a hook size for a bit larger leg warmer.

Pattern:

Top Cuff

Ch 7

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each st across (6)

Row 2: in BLO sc across, ch 1, turn (6)

Row 3-28: Repeat row 2 until your cuff reaches 8 inches (or desired length to wrap around top of calf)

At this point, sl st together to form a ring. I went through FL of first row and through the free stitch from the beginning end.

Leg portion:

Row 1: ch 1, sc around, sl st into 1st sc of round, sl st to join (28)

Row 2: ch 2, hdc in same stitch and in all st around, sl st to join (28)

    1. You could try working the whole item in a spiral rather than individual rows using stitch markers to keep track as you go. Mine did that as well but with a solid color it wasn’t an issue.
