Hello Friends! Brianna here again from Life and Yarn to bring you an easy crochet project! Summer came and went quickly, but that's ok because now it's time to make all the cozy fall and winter items! I really wanted to make some chunky crochet leg warmers as a fast crochet project now that the weather has cooled! The Hook Nook Yummy Yarn was a perfect choice since it works up quick as a bulky weight yarn! I love how soft this yarn is and it makes perfect accessories like these leg warmers! I hope you enjoy making these simple leg warmers as much as I did!
