Crochet Chair Leg Covers pattern (Perfect Solution To Chair Scraping): Part 1 – Square Legs

Finally no more chair scraping!

The noise of chairs scraping along a wooden floor can be enough to make you wince, but combine that with them scratching a polished floor at the same time is a major problem that needs a solution before it sends me around the twist!

I’ve tried small felt dots on the bottom of the legs which failed miserably after a few days so decided another solution was needed. I had some lovely grey Arran wool leftover from a jumper and it gave me an idea to make some chair leg socks. The first batch were for some square legged chairs.

Next up will be some for round legs

Square chair leg cover crochet pattern: 

Materials 

  • 5.5 mm hook
  • Arran weighted wool in grey pink and green
  • Stitch marker 


Basic pattern – will give you a base size 5×5 cm. To make it smaller/bigger you just need to alter the number of chain stitches at the start and the number of rows.

    This is absolute genius. We have a wooden floor in our dining room and the noise made by children (and some grown-ups) dragging chairs across it really gets to me. I also failed with the felt dots, and cork dots and even screw-on plastic feet. I shall be hooking a few of these beauties up asap. Thank you!!
