15+ Free Leg Warmer Patterns To Knit (Plus A Few Crochet)

Whether you’re wanting a pair of leg warmers to help keep off the chill during the winter months or use them to accessorize an outfit, you’ll find plenty of good ideas in this collection (they’re all free too). I’ve sorted the patterns into two groups, one for Adult sizes and the other for Children & Babies (though most are for grownups). The list is mainly knitting projects but I included a small number of crochet goodies as well.
