Click button below to add this project to your Ravelry queue:
- Worsted weight yarn in rainbow colors (yarn shown is Red Heart Super Saver in: Cherry Red, Perfect Pink, Pumpkin, Bright Yellow, Spring Green, Turquoise, Orchid
- J (6.0 mm) crochet hook
- Tapestry Needle
Sizing As Shown:
- 7.5 inches tall
- 9.5 inch circumference
- (heart is 1.5 inches tall and 1.5 inches wide)
Instructions for Legwarmers:
Ch 28, join with a sl st in furthest ch from hook to make a ring. (Note: there is no specific multiple for this pattern, to make your legwarmers bigger/smaller around, simply make more or less chains).
Round 1: Ch 3 and work a dc in each ch. Join with a sl st to close round.
Round 2: Ch 3 (work the ch 3 as you would for a front post dc...see photo below...this will make it look like the other stitches in the round). Work a fpdc (fron post double crochet) in each dc. Join with a sl st to close round.
Repeat round 2 until legwarmers are 7.5 inches tall or desired height. I worked 18 rows of rainbow stripes. Proceed to "top edging" section.
|These photos show you how to begin each round...if you place your hook behind the post before working the ch 3, it will make it look like all of the other stitches in the round.|
Round 1: Ch 1 and work a fpsc (front post single crochet) in each dc from the previous round.
Round 2: Ch 1 and work a sc in the blo (back loops only) in each st. (note: photo at the top shows legwarmers with and without this round)
