Leg Warmers

Lion Brand® Lion® Wool

GAUGE:

12 hdc + 9 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) with larger hook. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete st.

COLOR SEQUENCE
Work 2 rnds with B, 2 rnds with C, 2 rnds with A. Rep these 6 rows for Color Sequence.

LEG WARMER
Lower Ribbing

With smaller hook and A, ch 6.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across - 5 sc.
Rows 2-23 (27, 31): Ch 1, turn, working in back loops only, sc in each sc across; change to B in last st of last row.
Leg
Change to larger hook.
Rnd 1: With B and larger hook; pivot to work in ends of rows along edge, ch 2, work 24 (28, 32) hdc evenly spaced along edge; join with sl st in top of beginning ch.
Rnd 2: Ch 2, turn, hdc in each hdc around; join with sl st in top of turning ch; change to C in joining sl st.
Note: Continue in Color Sequence throughout.
Rnds 3-6 (8, 8) Rep last rnd, continuing in Color Sequence.
Rnd 7 (9, 9) (Increase): Ch 2, turn, *hdc in first 5 (6, 7) sts, 2 hdc in next st; rep from * around; join with sl st in top of turning ch - 28 (32, 36) sts.
Rnds 8 (10, 10)-16 (18, 18): Ch 2, turn, hdc in each st around; join with sl st in top of turning ch.
Rnd 17 (19, 19) (Increase): Ch 2, turn, *hdc in first 6 (7, 8) sts, 2 hdc in next st; rep from * around; join with sl st in top of turning ch - 32 (36, 40) sts.
Rnd 18 (20, 20): Ch 2, turn, hdc in each st around; join with sl st in top of turning ch. Rep last rnd until there are a total of 18 (24, 30) rnds or 1 1/2 in. (4 cm) less than desired length. Fasten off.
Top Ribbing
Note:
Sc worked in rows and through the back loop only, forms the top ribbing. The rows are joined to the top (last rnd) of the Leg with sl sts as work proceeds. From RS with smaller hook, join B in first st of last rnd of leg, ch 6.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across, sl st in next hdc of last rnd of leg - 5 sc.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in back loop of each sc across.
Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc in back loop of each sc across, skip next hdc of last rnd of leg, sl st in next hdc of last rnd of leg.
Rep last 2 rows until top ribbing has been worked around entire top edge of leg. Working through both thicknesses, sl st through ch-6 foundation ch and last row of top ribbing to close seam. Fasten off.

FINISHING
Sew lower ribbing seam. Weave in ends.

Leg Warmers Reviewed by HEATHER STUART on 2011-10-22 *****
I made these to pair with my daughter's Halloween costume this year. I misread the pattern at first and thought I did my own fix, but in the end, I think the pattern says to crochet in the round and I misunderstood. Either way, it was a simple pattern and these worked up quickly. And...my daughter LOVES them! I think I'll be making more very soon!
