Why Use Variegated Yarn for Crochet Boot Warmers?
Many people prefer to use variegated thread, yarn, or other materials for crochet projects because their color schemes that result can be interesting and appealing. Variegated threads may also take on a different texture or tone in different light, so they often give a unique look to an otherwise boring project.
In my opinion, on the right project, variegated yarn makes things more attractive. As many have said before me: “variety’s the spice of life!”
Because of the contrasting colors and unexpected transitions, variegated yarn can make crochet work an absolute delight! Variegated yarn makes it possible for you to create the wonderfully unexpected blends of color and texture that adds a bit of mystery to your work.
You can easily build-up many rows of alternating colors without tying off, cutting, or even unweaving – nothing short of magic! That’s one way variegated yarn comes in handy when making an item such as a set of unique boot warmers.
What Size Calves Do Crocheted Boot Warmers Fit?
As written, this pattern is sized to fit a 14-15 in calf diameter (36-38 cm). Primarily, this is due to the fact that the average size of my calf, where most of my boots need a boot warmer, is 14-15 in. The boot warmers do have a bit of stretch, and do fit snugly, so the varying locations where I might wear the boot warmers is well within this range.
This pattern is extremely versatile, though. So, you do have the opportunity to size your boot warmers to fit your own calves.
How Much Yarn Will I Need to Make Boot Warmers?
I used almost an entire 3.5 oz skein of 100% acrylic worsted weight yarn (size 4). I do generally crochet in a medium-tension, so this is what I would consider an average amount of yarn usage for this project. For anyone who generally crochets with a loose tension, you may consider purchasing a second skein to ensure that there is excess to complete your project.
Additionally, the amount of yarn needed will depend upon the yarn itself, the size you are making, and any extra accent motifs added to the edging of they cowl.
