Simple and Fast Crochet Legwarmers

Easy Crochet Legwarmers Pattern

I made a bunch of these as gifts and to sell over the holidays.   These work up quickly and are a great beginner project.

Incredibly Simple Legwarmers

Free crochet pattern from Allys’s Site

You Will Need:

H Hook (5 mm)

Worsted weight yarn

Gauge: 7 dc and 3 1/2” rows= 2”

Crochet Terms Used in This Pattern:

DC- double crochet


This pattern makes legwarmers that are approximately 6” long. You can make yours longer or shorter by making more or fewer chains.


Ch 24

Row 1) DC in 3rd from hook and across (22 dc)

Rows 2-14) ch 3, turn, dc in next stitch and each stitch across (22 dc)

Stop at row 14 or when work measures long enough to fit snugly around your calf.

Fasten off leaving a long tail and sew the top and bottom rows together.

Repeat the steps above for your second legwarmer.

5 1/2 Hour Afghan Throw

Looking for a quick gift idea?  I made this throw sized afghan for Ally in just about 7 hours of actual crochet time.

It is an easy and quick pattern using a large “P” crochet hook and working with 3 strands of worsted weight yarn.  The entire afghan is made with the V-stitch which is just double crochets and chains.

By using Caron One Pound I was able to crochet the entire thing and still have some leftover yarn.

Since receiving this blanket Allysa has used the stitch pattern to make some baby blankets.
