Crochet Tutorial: Candy Corn Leg Warmers

Who else is ready for hoodies, bonfires, crisp cool air, hot cocoa, football, and beautiful fall colors? This time of the year brings to mind all things cozy, and that is the premise for my candy corn leg warmers!

These colors always bring to mind the harvest season, Halloween, and cooler days. Today’s tutorial shows how to create these great pair of leg warmers in striped yellow, orange, and white.

Candy Corn Leg Warmers

 

My original pattern developed out of a discovery I made at a thrift shop. While hunting through a basket of vintage jewelry, I stumbled across a pair of wooden maple leaf earrings. I immediately thought these would make great buttons, but what to pair them with?! After careful consideration, I decided to remove the backings and drill some button holes and transform these into an embellishment for these leg warmers!

These are SUPER easy to learn and you can adapt these to any size and any color you’d like! They do not have to be Halloween themed. You can make them one plain color, you can make them team sport colors, you can get as creative as you desire! The video shows how to change color to create this striped effect, but if you wish to continue in a solid tone, just follow the directions without the color changes.
