I am always looking for new patterns to try and I have the hardest time following some patterns, so sometimes I simply make up my own. These leg warmers is one of my handy creations that is so simple and they are warm and can be worn anywhere. My patterns are not copyrighted, so feel free to make and do as you wish. Just simply provide me with some feedback.

Super Duper Simple Leg Warmers
By Windspirit

CH: Chain
DC: Double Crochet
SC: Single Crochet

This pattern is one that I designed myself as I have always had trouble following directions, so I wanted to develop something that would be so easy and simple that anyone could do, so here it is.

Use whatever type and color of yarn you wish, the possibilities are endless.

100 GRAMS Yarn of your Choice (Each leg takes 50 grams)   
Hook: 5.00 mm
Chain 40 (or more if you want longer)
DC in each stitch across
Ch 1 Turn

Continue this routine until you have 31 rows. (you can add more rows if you have larger legs.)

Once you have the number of rows you wish, fold in half, SC both sides together, weave ends and you have finished on leg warmer. Turn inside out so that the seam is hidden on the inside.

Because they are the same size at the top and bottom, I make a drawstring to tie them closed.

To make the draw string:

CH 100

Fold in half placing center at the center in the back, weave through from back to front around, once you reach the center front, work on the other half and weave the same way, finish off by tying a bow. Ready to wear. I have tucked in the bow on the bottom so as not to show, it is your choice.

If you wanted to use ribbon instead of making a drawstring to dress them up, you could, this pattern is all up to your imagination.
