Do you ever look at some of the workout gear for sale and think “Nope”? Unflattering fits, ugly color schemes, and clothes that aren’t quite as long as you’d like are just some of the reason why you might feel disheartened when shopping in a sporting goods store. There’s got to be a way to get fitness gear that looks stylish, right? As a crocheter, you have plenty of options to create something that is to your personal style. All you need to do is follow these crochet patterns for workout gear. Don’t forget the workout accessories! From yoga mats to water bottle carriers, you can tote your gear in style using an assortment of crochet patterns just for workout clothes and gear.
You’ll need to keep the purpose of your workout gear in mind when selecting the right yarn for your project. Worsted weight yarn would be ideal for workout plans that tend to be more low-key and relaxed. However, if you will work up a sweat while taking part in activities that include running or hiking, then look to using wool yarn in your project. Visibility is another factor to consider, especially if you work out at night or when lighting is dim. With that in mind, use reflective yarn (yes, that’s really a thing!) in your projects for bike helmets and other gear. Taking some time to research the types of yarn that will work for your fitness clothing and accessories can help you create the right project that fits your needs.
We here at AllFreeCrochet have compiled a list of crochet patterns that you can wear to your next yoga class or while hiking this weekend. These sporty crochet patterns are also the perfect gift ideas for the athletic person in your life.
