Design Story and Inspiration for these Ribbed Leg Warmers
Sometimes life gets crazy and you just need a fast and easy crochet project whether you are a beginner or advanced crocheter, right? I feel like I say that a lot…life gets crazy, young children do that to you, haha. Anyways, I love a good detailed pattern, but sometimes life gets in the way and I just need a creative release with something simple like these ribbed beginner crochet leg warmers.
Actually, it seems like every few months I am publishing a new easy free crochet pattern because I need a brain break. So there isn’t much of a design story or inspiration behind these cozy leg warmers other then then the need to create and pure survival from this crazy year! Hopefully this quick crochet project is as much of a creative release for you as the were for me!
About the Yarn
Ok, by now I am SURE you know I love The Hook Nook Yarn and that this Bulky Weight Yarn that was perfectly name Yummy is my go to favorite bulky weight acrylic! Nomally, I don’t like bully yarns but it seems that this one has really grown on me. Not only has it grown on me but it has become a go-to yarn when I am craving an instant gratification project. One being the Matching Hat and Cowl Set I made when the weather cooled down!

Creating a Leg Warmer Outfit
What I love about these ribbed leg warmers is that they can be styled into so many different outfits. I paired my cozy crochet leg warmers with low rise ankle cowboy boots, skinny jeans, a simple knit tank and a light blazer in a pop of color to add some sass to my leg warmer outfit! The best part about this lg warmer outfit is that it looks great with them straight up or cuffed. I love a chunky cuff!
- 555 yds / 10.5 oz #5 Wt. Yarn

The gauge for these chunky cuffed leg warmers isn’t super important but should be checked because this ribbing makes them stretch quite a bit. Please meet a gauge of 10 rows x 18 sts is 4″ x 4″ in the pattern repeat.
