Yes, I completely agree with you. This does not look like a legwarmer. It is meant to form a rectangle (slightly shaped) which you then sew up to form the legwarmer. But after three rows I stopped. I mean, any fool can see that this is never going to become a slightly shaped rectangle, can't they? Or a legwarmer.
I promise that I followed the pattern (which I saw in a local magazine) faithfully, Okay, I admit, not completely faithfully. I didn't use the right yarn, and I did not use the correct size crochet hook. And I have to confess to having been too lazy to fetch my glasses while I was crocheting away, so I may not always have inserted the hook into the third chain, as instructed. And I wasn't too sure of what dc and tr meant but I think I eventually got it right after I googled. Unfortunately I had already done a few before I googled, and I was too lazy to start from scratch. Whatever.
If I am going to have to follow the RULES all the time, where is the fun, I ask you?
So I sewed it onto the neckline of an old T-shirt.
I might wear it. But I don't think I should tell people that it used to be the first three rows of a legwarmer.
