How to Crochet Table Leg Warmers & Booties

Save

Creating booties and leg warmers for a table is a practical idea. Leg warmers can help cushion the table legs from children, who sometimes bump into them while playing on the floor, and the booties can help protect the floor from scrapes if the table is moved. If you know how to chain, slip stitch and single crochet, you can make both items with just scrap yarn.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 skein of worsted weight yarn
  • Crochet hook, size G

Table Leg Warmers

  • Work the entire leg warmer in rows. Chain 32 stitches. Turn the work and single crochet in the second chain from the hook and each additional chain. Turn the work.

  • Chain one stitch, and single crochet in each stitch across. Turn the work. Repeat this row until the piece is long enough to fit around the table leg.

  • Cut a long tail on the yarn and use this to stitch the first row and the last row together. Sew elastic thread around the top and bottom, if desired.

  • Repeat these steps so each table leg ends up with a leg warmer.

Table Booties

  • Chain 6 stitches. Use a slip stitch to join with the first stitch to create a circle

  • Chain one, and crochet two single crochet stitches in each chain around the circle, slip stitch this with the first single crochet. Chain one stitch. Continue this round until the piece is the width of the table leg.

  • Single crochet in the back loop of each stitch around. Slip stitch with the first single crochet.

  • Single crochet through both loops for each of the remaining rounds. Continue until the bootie is the length that is desired. Cut the thread and weave in any loose ends.

  • Repeat these steps until there is a bootie made for each table leg.
