I've been crocheting since I was a little girl. Since then I've designed for magazines and offer free patterns at my site.


Now that the 80s fashions are back in style, legwarmers are a hot item again. Here you'll find free crochet legwarmer or leg warmer patterns, whichever way you'd like to spell it. Not only are they fashionable, but will keep your legs toasty warm this winter.

Patterns are included for babies, ladies and young girls. You'll find one for everyone. If they don't offer your size an easy change of the hook will make them smaller or larger.

Just click on the titles and you'll be taken to the photos and free patterns for the projects.

Baby Picot Leg Warmers - Crochet N' Crafts offers this free pattern with a pretty stitch design. You'll need Bernat Baby Sport Weight yarn or other comparable yarn and a size E hook. The finished size isn't offered, but because they have a lot of stretch they should fit several sizes.

Bernat Satin Legwarmers - Offered by Crochet'n Crafts these are not only warm, but pretty as well. The pattern can be adjusted to fit any size leg. She used Bernat Satin yarn, but you can use any worsted weight that you have.

Button Leg Warmers - These legwarmers are different, because they have buttons sewn up the sides. You can opt to make them without the buttons also. Design Adventures offers the free pattern. The original was designed with Red Heart Super Saver yarn and a size H crochet hook. The finished legwarmers should fit most teens and adults.

      In your tutorial I think you have an error. When you start about the 3rd row of border sc’s you did hdc’s. According to your beg instr both ends of the leg warmer should be 10sc, then hdc’s. Please check it for yourself. I plan to make some fir my 12 yr old gr granddaughter.

      THANK YOU!

      I remember wearing these when I was in junior high, they were so "in"! I would probably wear them when visiting my family up north where the temperature falls below zero in January.
