Crocheted Leg Warmers

Leg Warmers are great for keeping the legs or ankles warm during the cold winter months.

They make great gifts for anyone, especially for those who are always cold, or for those suffering from arthritis. Arthritis sufferers will find that once they are used to wearing them, they don't want to go without them anymore, because they will help to reduce the swelling and the pain.

Leg warmers can be worn with just about any outfit; they are sure to keep you warm when wearing skirts and dresses, or, you can also wear them underneath your jeans and even under your pajamas. So whatever outfit you choose, leg warmers will help to keep you warm.

Leg warmers can be purchased at clothing stores, or you can make themselves if you know how to crochet, knit or sew. To make them you don't really need a pattern; simply measure how long and wide you need them and then make them accordingly.

But for those who love to follow patterns there are many free patterns online for crocheted leg warmers.
