Spicy Lace Leg Warmers

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®


1 1/4 pattern reps + 3 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern.

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


1. Legwarmers are meant to fit with negative ease (Legwarmer circumference should be less than body measurement) for a snug fit.
2. Pattern is written for Mini Legwarmers with specific changes for Maxi Legwarmers. When only one number is given, it applies to both sizes. To follow pattern more easily, circle all numbers pertaining to your size before beginning.
3. Due to openness of pattern stitch, Legwarmers are crocheted flat and then seamed for increased stability.

Ch 28.
Row 1: Work 2 dc in 4th ch from hook, ch 4, sk next 5 ch, *5 dc in next ch, ch 4, sk next 5 ch; rep from * across to last ch, 3 dc in last ch - 4 pattern reps at the end of this row.
Row 2: Ch 3, turn, (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in each ch-4 sp across, dc in top of turning ch.
Row 3: Ch 6, turn, 5 dc in next ch-3 sp, *ch 4, 5 dc in next ch-3 sp; rep from * across, ch 1, dtr in top of turning ch.

Spicy Lace Leg Warmers Reviewed by Lindsay Smith on 2012-08-30 *****
I really LOVE this pattern and they really do look adorable with my ballet flats. I'm going to try it with a sport weight and see if I can make them less bulky for a dainty outfit!!
