Like usual, my daughter told me what she wanted me to make her next. She specifically wanted blue leg warmers. Luckily, I had just bought a lot of blue Red Heart with Love during the Black Friday sale at Walmart.
I didn’t want to make these like my usual HDC leg warmers. I wanted to use a fun stitch! The Bobble Stitch is so much fun to work with… especially when crocheting for a young child.
Although this pattern was designed for my daughter, I went ahead and wrote out this free crochet pattern in three sizes- toddler, child, and adult.
Red Heart with Love (For the toddler and child size, you will need less than one skein. For the adult size, you will need a little more than one skein.)
K-6.5 mm crochet hook
Yarn needle for weaving in ends.
~Note~ If you need to adjust the size, all you have to do is add or subtract stitches from your starting FSC by counts of 2.
Round 1: FSC 26 for Toddler size –– FSC 30 for Child –– FSC 36 for Adult size. Join to first FSC.
Round 2: CH 1. Turn. SC in same stitch. 4-DC-Bobble in next stitch. **SC in next stitch. 4-DC-Bobble in next stitch. Repeat from ** around. Join to first SC. (26, 30, 36 stitches)
Round 3: CH 1. Turn. (Do not crochet into the same stitch. Your first SC will go into the top of the bobble stitch. Your last SC of this round will go into your starting stitch) SC into each stitch around. Join to first SC. (26, 30, 36 stitches)
Repeat rounds 2 and 3 — 11, 14, 17 more times.
Finish off and weave in your ends.
