All In The Family Crochet Leg Warmers

The All In the Family Crochet Leg Warmers pattern is just that. The free pattern includes seven sizes of leg warmers from newborn all the way to adult. The best part? It doesn’t matter which size you make, you should be able to make a pair with just ONE skein of most worsted weight yarns.

This is the newest installment of the 2023 One Skein Series, in which I am publishing one pattern per month (on the second Friday) that uses one skein of yarn or less.

As long as your skein has 250 yards you can make a pair of adult size leg warmers. If your skein has 360 yards or more, you can make an adult pair AND a child size pair from the same skein! 🙌

Yardage per skein of commonly used worsted weight yarn yardage are as follows:

Red Heart Super Saver – 364 yards
Bernat Value – 440 yards
I Love This Yarn – 355 yards
Big Twist Value – 380 yards

There’s something about a chunky baby wearing leg warmers that gets me. So adorable, and so quick to crochet too! With this pattern and how little yarn it takes, baby can have a whole assortment of colors and yarn choices in no time flat.

With the cost of living nowadays, I’m doing things more frugally than I have in years. I’ve gone through my list of 33 ways to lower your utilities and included in that, have taken my own advice and turned my thermostat down by 2 degrees. My feet are always cold anyway and these leg warmers are a big help in making that adjustment.

I am also going on walks most mornings, or when it’s at least 36 degrees F, and on those chillier days its so nice to have my ankles covered. I’m going to make a plain black pair next so they’ll go with any yoga pants.

  1. How would I do this without using foundation single crochet? I never could get the hang of it and personally, I don't care for the way it looks. If you could just give me the number I should chain using the regular method, I'd appreciate it, thanks!
  2. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague who has been conducting a little research on this. And he in fact bought me lunch simply because I found it for him... lol. So let me reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to discuss this matter here on your web page.
