What size hook did you use for the leggings
Oh my! I hadn't realized I didn't state the hook size! I used 6.00mm.
I was guessing you used a 6.00mm hook but I wanted to make sure
Whats the waist sizes of the Small-Medium and Large Leggings?...And also are they suppose to fit loosely or snuggly?
Small is size 4-6, medium is 8-10, large is 12-14..... there's a range in size because they are stretchy. They are meant to fit tightly like regular tights. Hope this helps!
Thank-You it does help. How long is the inseam on them?
31 inch inseam:) To make longer or shorter, simply take away or add to the bottom row.
I just wanted you to know that i made these tights/leggings. I have had so many compliments on them. THANK-YOU for posting this pattern. I wanted something to wear under my jeans when I went hunting to keep me warm, I am sure these will!
Aww, that's awesome!
I was trying to add a Pic so you could see them but it wouldn't let me do it...

Do you have a bigger butt version? My daughter is thin but, she has in her words back lol.
lol. After you assemble the legs together and are starting the butt, you would need to increase some stitches. For example (Rnd 1: Facing inside the pants (which are inside out) and working around the top of pants, ch1. Sc in next (16, 18, 20)dc, hdc in next 5 dc,(THIS IS HALF OF THE FRONT) --NOW WORKING THE BACK-- THIS IS WHERE YOU WOULD INCREASE BUTT SIZE:) TRY INCREASING 2DC IN NEXT ST, DC IN NEXT (40, 44, 48), 2DC IN NEXT ST..(=44, 48, 50)... instead of-dc in next (42, 46, 50)dc This would increase the butt by 2 stitches, if you need more, add another increase in the center. I hope this explains it!
In row one of the leggings, I chained 44 and after that, it says to work a dc in the next 49 stitches. Am I suppose to double crochet onto the opposite side of the chain? Then on the second row, it tells me to dc in the next 42 stitches. Do you mean 43?

Rnd 1: ch (44, 48, 52), dc in 3rd ch from hook, dc in next (41, 45, 49) ch, ch2. Turn. The "dc in 3rd ch from hook counts 1 dc + the next 41dcs = 42dc)Rnds 2-10: dc in next (42, 46, 50)dc, ch2, turn.
I got online to see reference to making a ballet style (workout) short, when I saw these leggings! I've been crocheting for 20+ years,,,and BRAVO, for taking this project on. I LOVE IT..It can be leggings for under skirts, or just worn with a shirt and boots. In cold weather, men would LOVE to have these instead of thermals to wear under pants..in a cold warehouse, working outside or hunting! I'm excited to play around with this pattern, adding pockets, accessories to waist band (probably skull beads!lol) and silver buttons with tabs. Again..HOW cute,,thank you. Oh!lol,,this is Charles wife..:0,,,,wow this would be embarasing for him
Thank you very much:) I hope you enjoy them!
what does"bl" mean????
back loop. this creates a ridge, used for ribbing and cuffs.
Is this pattern correct???? im confused about (38,42,4)..................Rnds 16-18: dc in next (38, 42, 4)dc, join with sl st, ch 2. Turnthe 4 ia confusing me can u help me please?
It is a size adjustment, it should be 46, not 4, sorry:)
About to attempt making them! Although I will have to make them a bit larger due to my thighs being a bit larger than the sizes you have listed.
Seeing as I'm not that great in altering patterns do you think you could help me out with making it bigger. I've done added 4 more to the beginning ch 52 but it seems and Xl in this still won't fit my thighs. So I hope to hear back soon
the best way to try to increase is add as many stitches to fit your thigh to start, and go from there, you will have to work in the added sts for the top. I can't really go over it right now, as I am super busy with orders! It shouldn't be very hard to figure out though! good luck!
Thanks for posting this! I've never made pants or tights for living people before, but after recently finding a couple patterns I thought was perfect to make a female version of Comic's Green Arrow for Halloween I figured why not try? Go all out crocheting the whole costume, and look for an easy pants or tights pattern. This sounds easy after reading over it. Can't wait to make them, and promise to get a pic to share with you.
OMG! These are sooooo cute. Just a quick question, are you saying to join them into a round on row 11? So there won't be any seems? Brilliant pattern. Thanks for sharing!
Yes, join on row 11! Up to this point, you are working back and forth.
Awesome.. I am going to make them very soon.. Thanks for sharing it..:)
I have made a couple of pairs of these and they are wonderful! Everybody loves them and the work up so fast! Thank you so much :) I have been crocheting less than a year and I find your pattern very clear and concise. Merry Christmas
