The Warmest Camo Tights -free crochet pattern-


I wrote this pattern a few years ago, and it has proved to be one of my most popular! I think this may be due to:

#1: It's free
#2: It's easy
#3: It's quick
#4: crochet pant patterns for adults are almost impossible to come by
I am revisiting this pattern, because I am moving it from it's old web locations:)


It has been posted as a free pattern on Ravelry, and I love going back and seeing how fellow crocheters have made out! Go check out their projects!

    1. Pant Size: Small- 4-6; Medium- 8-10; Large-12-14. There is a variance due to stretch, they are very stretchy.
