Crochet Leg Warmer with Flare Crochet Leg Warmers with Flare1
With this pattern, you can crochet a pair of flared legwarmers, or just make flared ankle warmers. When making the ankle warmers you can crochet them with or without the ribbed top by following the special instructions at the beginning.

They use up quite a bit of yarn, due to the puff stitch, but that also makes them warmer. And the puff stitch will also make your legs appear to be on the chunky side.
