Party Legwarmers and Headband Set - Free Prop Pattern

It sure has been a long time coming! Finally I have a new photography prop pattern! This pattern will make a pair of super adorable ankle to knee leg warmers and a little flower headband. These beauties add a pop of colour, a little texture and a bunch of cute for any baby's shoot! Will fit a bub of 0-3 months old.

I have a whole bunch of prop ideas so you can expect plenty more of these in the future, along with more prem patterns, more toy patterns and more scrap kits!

Party Legwarmers and Headband.

5.5mm Hook
DK weight yarn in main and contrasting colours. (8ply for aus)

Chain does NOT count as a stitch.
Join in the FIRST stitch, not to the chain.
First stitch of each row is in the same space as the initial chain. 

These steps will help create an almost invisible seam.

Start with contrasting colour:

1. ch23, being careful not to twist it, join.
2. ch1, sc in each stitch around, join.
3-4 ch1, sc in the back loop only each stitch around, join.

End contrasting colour and join main

5. ch2, hdc back loop only in each stitch around, join.
6-11. ch2, hdc in each stitch around, join.

End main colour and join contrasting colour

12. ch1, sc in each stitch around, join.
13-14. ch1, sc in the back loops only in each stitch around.

End off and weave in all tails.


Chain 43 (or length needed for babies head)
sc in the second chain and each chain across. Sew together


ch2, sc 6 times into the 1sc chain.
In first sc work the following (sl st, hdc, dc, hdc, sl st) repeat in all six sc's to make 6 petals. Leave a long tail.

Sew flower onto headband.

Hope you enjoy this pattern :)


  1. Do you happen to know about how many yards of yarn the legwarmers take? Also, in the headband pattern, is it meant to be a ch, or is it supposed to be something else...?

    1. ch should be sc. Ive updated :)
      As for yardage, I have no idea, but it isnt much. I started with an already used 100g ball and still had some left.
