Baby Tunisian Crochet Legwarmers
by Jennifer Tan of Syrendell

These warm, soft legwarmers can be made quickly with a Tunisian crochet hook, yet they look like they have
been knitted.  To learn more about the basics of crocheting and Tunisian crocheting, see our eCourse available
here at Little Acorn Learning.

•        Size M, N, O or P Tunisian Crochet hook.  The one featured here is size N from Syrendell on Etsy.

Newborn Baby Size
•        ch 15
•        tss across

•        tks 16 rows

•        Last row will have increases:  Add 3 stitches at the beginning and 3 stitches at the end of the row by
creating a stitch in-between previous stitches as you tks.  This will make the edge flair a bit so that it fits over a
sock or top of a shoe.

•        Cut a long tail and make a knot.  Use this tail to sew up the legwarmer inside-out.  Knot, weave in all
ends, and trim ends.  Turn right-side-out.

•        Repeat for the second legwarmer.  Add crocheted flowers, ribbons or embellishments, if desired.  For a
larger baby, start with more chains and add more rows.
