EASY Materials
4mm crochet hook
DK/8ply yarn, color of your choice
Scissors, Darning needle

A tape measure
Optional a Stitch Marker

US Terms
SC - Single Crochet
HDC - Half Double Crochet
BLO - Back Loop Only
Ch - Chain
FO - Fasten Off

We will be working this pattern from side to side. Top to bottom of leg in other words.

You need to measure from below your knee to your ankle.   You can have it as long as you like remembering it will scrunch down a bit and so you may want to add extra chains when you start.   You may if you wish add elastic at the top to keep them up.  It’s entirely up to you.

Pattern starts with 10 SC and ends with 10 SC.  HDC in the middle. 
I would highly recommend reading this pattern BEFORE you start

Make two the same

Row 1: Ch the amount of CH’s you need for the length you want your legwarmer

Row 2: SC in 2nd ch from the hook and the next 9 stitches
You can place an optional stitch marker after last SC. 
As you go on in rows you will notice that the hdc is higher than the single crochet and you may be able to see where to change from SC to HDC.

HDC across until you reach your last 10 stitches, mark last HDC if you need to, SC in the next 10 SC to the end. Ch1 turn.

Row 3: SC in to the next 9 stitches in BLO, HDC in BLO in to every HDC, SC in the last 10 SC into BLO, ch1 turn.

Row 4: Repeat row 3 until leg warmer is wide enough to fit around your leg.  FO leaving a 30 to 40 cms long tail of yarn for sowing up your edges.  

Line up your two SC edges together and whip stitch through the loops edges to join.  Finish.

One of the final advantages of electric forklifts is noise. Make certain you perform a check prior to purchasing your truck to ensure they are available in the UK and secondly that they are not too costly to purchase. Warehouse Style Retail Store - These days, retailers have ventured into warehouse style retail stores wherein the products are stored and sold from the same place. They do not use the regular types of shelves. Instead, retailers have combined the two aspects of retailing and storing and incorporated both of them into one. The high ceiling buildings display products on industrial racks. The lower racks are used for retail selling and the upper racks are used for storing. Indeed, it is a unique storage facility and has brought a revolutionary change in the moving storage services.
