Hey there!

I'm looking for crocheted stockings. I saw a really neat thigh high one online somewhere but I can't seem to find it. Every time I try to type stocking or legwarmer, I get the retro 80s versions..

If anyone has an suggestions, please lemme know Cheesy

I am not sure what look you are going for but Lion has a pair of thigh high ones that are definitely not from the 70's and 80's

Sadly these are from the dreaded time frame you are trying to avoid but they can definitely be modernized..

these came from one of our very own Craftster crocheters..

another modern pattern

not 80's

I don't know what look you are going for but figured I'd try to find a good range for you.... I found lots of really great knitting patterns though Cry

Is the Japanese style different from what we usually see? Is there a photo?  When you say thigh high I'm guessing these are just made longer than just over the knee.  Here's a pic of my favorite.  It has crochet inserts and tops but they're done in knit garter stitch. Cute as can be, but again knitted.

Are you talking about these

Style-wise, I mean. Just curious, cuz those are the styles I usually see on the lolita fashions.

Those are sewn.
But if you ask me if you just crochet a tube, put in a few belt loops then you can string your elastic through and you will have them in crochet.  Just crochet them a bit bigger than your calf and you will be okay.

Hi there!  I too have searched for japanese leg warmer patterns. (i love them!)  Heres a site i found.  Free patterns and they are actual japanese leg warmers.  They are in in Japanese, since they are actuall 'japanese' ones but the charts are simple to understand. Heres the link: http://www.clover.co.jp/kyan/knit/zipper1.shtml

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

I dont have any more for the japanese links for leg warmers.  But I have some for other crochet items.  Would you like me to share those?
