Boot toppers (or cuffs) are the perfect winter accessory when wearing a skirt with boots. They knit up fast and they are surprisingly warm. You don’t have to tell anyone they are just cuffs… most everyone will think you have knit really gorgeous socks.

Instructions for the Barleycove cable panel are written and charted for personal preference. All measurements are given in US and metric.
