Hi, these photos don't make them look very good, but they're pretty cute and comfortable.

They have a tie around the top because I didn't feel like putting elastic in them, and I liked the idea of having little circles hanging off the ends of them.

Did you know...taking photos of your legs without a self timer is a horrible, horrible experience?

I have a pattern because I didnt have faith in my duplicating skills. Did I mention I hate abbreviations? Theyre so...unfriendly.

   Row 1: Chain 13,half double crochet in the 3rd stitch from hook. Half-double crochet    until end of chain...repeat until band fits around calf while stretched. Slip stitch together, but dont fasten off.

   Top edging of band: Chain one and single crochet in each row (you'll see a hole). Chain 3, and 4 double-crochet in first stitch. Chain one, and skip three stitches. 5 double crochet in the next stitch. Continue until you're around. Fasten off.

   Optional tie: Create a small circle and single crochet around it. Slip stitch to join, chain however many you'd like, pull out a biiiiiiig loop and thread it through the fan stitch you just made. Loop the end of the chain around around, create a slip    stitch, and single-crochet around the loop you just made. Slip stitch, and fasten off.

   Row 1: Single crochet around the edge of the band. If you like your legwarmers to poof, single crochet two stitches together for each row.
   Row 2: Chain three, create a bobble stitch. Skip a stitch and chain one. Continue bobbling and chaining until you're around.
   Row 3 and 4: Chain three and continue, but make the bobble stitch around the chain, not through it.
   Row 5: Chain one, single crochet in the next four stitches, and popcorn in the 5th. I used 5 double crochets. Continue until you're around.

   Row 6-9: Do the same thing as rows 2-4.
   Continue until length is achieved. You might increase over time, but the bell shape looks pretty good anyway.

Bottom band: I didnt really make much of a band. I single crocheted 3 stitches together around the whole thing, and then I went back around and half double crocheted in each stitch. You can continue the top band but thats a whole lotta work.
