Slouchy Leg Warmers for Infants with Pattern


Alright crafters, it's finally made its way to my own blog! This my very first time writing a pattern for infants and I'm quite pleased with the end results. They turned out so cute, the picture does NOT do it any justice. I hope you love them as much as I do!

Custom ordered Infant Leg Warmers.

Slouchy Leg Warmers for Infants


Materials:
  • Red Heart Soft yarn in colors of your choice (you can also use I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby)
  • size H/5.0MM crochet hook
  • Yarn needle for weaving in the ends
  • scissors
Stitches used: (American terminology. HERE is a converter.)
  • Chain (ch)
  • Single Crochet (SC)
  • Double Crochet (DC)
  • Half Double Crochet (HDC)
  • Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC pictures)
  • Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC video)
Difficulty level:
I suggest at least an Advanced Beginner simply because of the FPDC and BPDC stitches.


My patterns on this blog will always be free for you to use as you see fit.
Feel free to sell the finished project in person or online.
If you do sell online please link back to the pattern here on my blog.
Don't try to sell my free patterns and don't claim my patterns as your own.
It's not only rude and immoral, it shows everyone else just how big a tool you are.

The frill is used on the end of the leg warmer where the SC row was made.
Join to the white HDC stitches with a slip stitch and ch 3, *slip stitch to next stitch, ch 3. Repeat from * around. Tie off and weave in ends.
Use the frill on one end of each leg warmer.




The custom order was for a hat and leg warmers.
She originally said a "hat with a flower" then she said "surprise me".
So I made a hat with a flower and an owl so she can pick one!
I used the owl hat pattern from Repeat Crafter Me and left off the earflaps then edged it with a crab stitch (reverse single crochet). I love both hats! I wouldn't be able to choose just one.

Enjoy this weeks free pattern and let me know if you need any help with it! You can reach me at my Facebook page, Crochet2002, or by commenting on this post.

As always,
Peace and blessings,
~~Karen~~
