The Boston Legwarmers are great crochet legwarmers for wearing over boots or flats or can be worn under boots as boot cuffs!
These simple crochet legwarmers were inspired by the Boston Slouch pattern! I just loved the stitch combo and the texture it created and thought it would be great for a pair of legwarmers.
I really love wearing boot cuffs under my boots also, so I wanted to create something that could be both! The Boston Legwarmers are great for wearing over leggings when working out or with booties, or under long boots!
The Boston Legwarmers crochet pattern calls for worsted (#4) weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Yarn Heartland for mine. I really love this yarn for wearable projects. It is a 100% acrylic yarn that is so soft and comes in lots of beautiful, rustic colorways.
You will need approximately 510 yards to create a pair of legwarmers.
This crochet pattern is written in one size with instructions on how to adjust the size.
It is rated Easy in pattern difficulty. You will just need to know basic crochet stitches like single crochet and half double crochet.
