Pattern Notes

This pattern fits comfortably around a calf that measures 14″ in circumference at the widest point. 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. This pattern and video tutorial is completely beginner friendly!

Note: if you need to use more than 35 chains, you will likely need to purchase a 3rd skein of yarn.

    I am a beginner and was looking for a knit leg warmer but they all looked too difficult for me. Stumbled across this video and Im excited to try it. Thank you for the step by step video. !

    I love the feel of this yarn, and love the color schemes it’s available in but I HATE working with it! I don’t feel it’s a very beginner friendly yarn at all! If you make a mistake, it’s impossible to pull it apart to start over. I’ve had to cut so much of this yarn off and throw it away it’s ridiculous! Especially for the cost of the yarn. The pattern is very easy to follow and very beginner friendly. Just wish there was a better yarn to work with that would give similar results.

    • I definitely know what you mean. Roving yarn can be a real challenge! You can substitute with any worsted weight yarn, but like you mentioned the results will look different. My best advice in working with roving yarn is to crochet loosely and make sure you aren’t splitting the fibers as you work. It will unravel easier that way. Best of luck!

    You need to fix how your patterns print out….love your patterns but can’t keep using 7 to 14 pages on simple patterns to print them out! Also the picture of your item we are working on has comments printed all over it.

  • Lynn Burgess

    Brittany, I find your instructions to be the easiest to follow of any I’ve seen. I’m not a newbie, but need reminders! I also think that my daughters could follow your instructions as they have never knit or crocheted before. Lynn

  • Jade Keoge

    i love what you did. i started out with this but it ended up doing my own thing with it. thank you for the idea hun! your idea gave me courage to try something different

  • Liz

    What color of the Lion Brand Landscapes was used in the pictures above? It looks like the color used in the video is not the same as the one in the pictures. I like the brighter color combination (blue, pink, and rusts) of the yarn in the pictures and would like to reproduce. Thanks!

  • These will be my next project! You have an amazing site and YouTube channel. I really appreciate you sharing your expertise. Unfortunately, my local store (and online) are out of the colors you used for your legwarmers, but I’ll choose and alternative.

  • Would love to print your pattern to use for myself but have to many messages on the end to manage to do that is there a way to only print pattern following. A stroke I am excited about crochet again and I so love your easy patterns for me
    Very kind regarded irene

    • Elizabeth

      I totally agree!!! Other simple patterns like this only are 3 pages – this was 7 pages and there is printed messages over the pictures of the item!

  • Thanks I have a friend with really cold ankles and legs that needs this for sleeping at night! She will be very happy for anything to help keep her warmer. It’s medical and she has to live with it might as well help out when I can!

  • So cute!! thank you, going to make some of these for daughter, daughter in law and grand daughters! i bet they will love them as much as i do, and as much as i will enjoy making them!! God bless, have a wonderful day!
