1 1/4 pattern reps + 3 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.


Legwarmers are meant to fit with negative ease (Legwarmer circumference should be less than body measurement) for a snug fit.

Pattern is written for Mini Legwarmers with specific changes for Maxi Legwarmers.

When only one number is given, it applies to both sizes.

To follow pattern more easily, circle all numbers pertaining to your size before beginning.

Due to openness of pattern stitch, Legwarmers are crocheted flat and then seamed for increased stability.
