I am proud to call myself a child of seventies and the eighties and I love the way that trends of these by-gone eras have been resurrected, made new again and embraced by young and old nostalgia-prone groovy chicks like myself.
The legwarmer pattern I designed for you follows a basic crochet stitch and puff pattern I came up with a few years ago. The pattern which is easy to follow, makes an interesting texture, and stitches up pretty quickly.
Pattern stitches include: Single Crochet (Sc), Half Double Crochet (Hdc) and a simple Puff Stitch for variety. All stitches are suited for the beginner and experienced crocheter, alike.
The yarn I used for the ones pictured was a variegated type by Carons “Simply Soft” which gave it that sort of stripey affect. I think it would look very rich in a dark solid colored hue, like wine or dark moss, as well. It’s totally up to you which look to go for, ecclectic or elegant, which makes this pattern very versatile.
