Baby Leg Warmers!

IMG_1254Let me start by saying, don’t judge me for my crooked rows. This is the second pair of leg warmers I have crocheted, and this pattern was a little more complicated than the first one I made. Daisy looks adorable in them, anyway (she’d look adorable in a brown paper sack…which isn’t saying much for my leg warmers I suppose). These little gems will come in handy when my munchkin starts crawling. Which could be any day now, and I’d hate for her knees to get rug burns!

This super cute pattern happens to come from a fellow WordPress blogger! Her blog is awesome, with tons of free patterns. Click here to check it out! The pattern is for 6-9 month olds, but I had to shrink it down quite a bit for Daisy. Her legs don’t have any big baby rolls yet!

I also whipped up some little teethers for Daisy. I had some old, slightly coarse yarn lying around and no idea what to do with it. It occurred to me that the yarn would probably be fairly absorbent. I crocheted a few simple small shapes with the yarn, and ta-da! Baby teethers. They can be wet down with cold water, and Daisy loves to chew on them. These are something I can make in a matter of minutes for friends with teething babies.

I had no idea how to crochet an oval before this, and I totally winged it. I think it came out pretty good! The heart shape is a free pattern I found online. Click here to see it! That’s all the crochet fun I have for today. With the snow we’ve gotten, I’m inspired to embark on some warm winter projects! Those will be up soon.

  1. The look on her face says they’re baby approved!! I remember when big girls wore these, not as cute as on Miss Daisy 🙂
