Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Crochet Leg Warmers (Child sized)

While strolling the aisles at Walmart last weekend, I decided to look at the yarn.
Why is it that when I am there in the yarn department, I forget what it is that I wanted to make?
I knew I wanted to get some yarn.
I knew I had projects on my list of things to make. I just couldn't remember what they were!
How can I get yarn for a project when I don't know what the project is???
You see my dilemma?
My solution was to let my seven year old daughter choose a skein of yarn, and I would figure out something to make later.
She chose "Honeydew" in Red Heart Super Saver Yarn.
Since she chose it, I figured it only fitting that I make something for her. I decided to make leg warmers. The problem was, I didn't have a pattern and one of the kids was using the computer at the time.
Time for another solution: I'll write my own pattern.
Here is what I came up with.

Click the link below for the pattern:



  1. I love it! My daughter loves being in a onesie and leg warmers on those not too cold/not too hot days. I can't wait to make her some.

    I'd love for you to link up and share at my weekly link party. :)

  6. @Sarah, Thank you for stopping by & following!

  7. @7Kidsandcounting, Thank you for stopping by!
    You SHOULD try crocheting sometime. There are so many great tutorials online for beginners. You really only need to learn a couple of simple stitches at first, and it gets easier from there. ;-)

  8. @Katie, Thank you for stopping by & following!
    I would love to join your linky party! Thank you for the invite! :-)

  9. How cute!!! It's times like these that I really wish I could crochet. Popping by to say "hi" from the weekend blog hop.

  10. How cute! Thank you for sharing your pattern!!!

  11. Hi Char! Thanks for stopping by & following!

    Thanks Maryanne!

  12. I'm so happy you like the Granny Stripe Bag! I do love these little leg warmers and your color burst blanket. Beautiful! Wishing you a very happy easter weekend. :)

  13. Thank you, Sara!!!
    I hope you have a happy Easter weekend, too!

  14. Did you just made it by yourself or you bought it from super malls and stores? I just ask you why because these leg warmers are looking good and high quality. I admit that it was better than mine so I guess I should have replicas of these wonderful creation.

  15. Hi Lisa! I did make them myself. Thanks!

  16. I love the pattern you shared for the child leg warmers. I am new to crochet but have made several things. The terminology to "Round 1: Pivot work and make 33 sc evenly spaces around the side of the ribbing. Do not join." I am not understanding how to to do.
    Is there an easy way of figuring this out?


    1. Hi Kelka!
      I am editing this pattern with a picture... I hoped this helps! I will break it down with actual crochet photo steps soon, but I hope this helps for now. :-)
      If you have any more questions, please feel free to click the contact me tab on the left to email me. :-)

    2. Love, Love, Love the leg warmers. I have made 2 pair already for my grand daughter. Her mother really likes them.
      Now I have a request. I am looking for a simple sweater/cardigan for an infant 6-9 months or 1 year. Do you have anything close to this.?

    3. Hi! Thank you sooo much!
      Unfortunately, I do not have a sweater pattern right now. BUT, if you check out the directory on Crochet Patterns Central, there are quite a few free patterns to choose from. I hope you find something you like!
      Here is the link for the baby sweater and cardigan page-


I love getting feedback from my readers!
