About this Pattern


If you haven’t crocheted anything before and you want to know where to begin, you’re in the right place. The Beginner Crochet Leg Warmers pattern here at B.Hooked is a great first crochet project.

Through this project, you’ll learn the fundamentals of crochet projects: the chain stitch, the slip stitch and the double crochet stitch. You can learn each of these skills individually but here we believe new skills “stick” when incorporated into a project you can enjoy.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We’ve prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you will need to get started as well as a video tutorial and written instructions to complete these leg warmers from start to finish.

getting started

Recommended Supplies


  • 2-3 skeins; 325 yds Lion Brand Landscapes (Colorway pictured: desert spring)
  • 6 mm crochet hook
  • Yarn Needle
  • Scissors

FAQ: Can I use a different yarn?
Sure, as long as it’s in the same weight category. Check your gauge and adjust as needed so the sizing comes out right. The recommended yarn amount will likely be different too.

Additional Notes


Finished Size

7″ wide (laying flat);
11″ length

Gauge

10 sts x 5 rows = 2″
(double crochet)

This pattern fits comfortably around a calf that measures 14″ in circumference at the widest point and requires 2 skeins of Landscapes. You may use more or less chains than the pattern calls for depending on the size of your calf or the calf of the person you are crocheting for. After you make your first chain, make sure it fits comfortably around the widest point of your calf.

If you need to add more stitches for a bigger circumference, pick up a third skein of Landscapes to make sure you have enough yarn to finish.

Chain 3 at beginning of round counts as a double crochet stitch.
