Keep your young skater’s toes warm and cozy while they skate this winter!
Knit these fun and endlessly embellish-able boot covers in a night or two.
Your skater’s will have warm toes while they bunny hop the winter away!

My daughter was having trouble with her toes getting cold
before she was ready to come off the ice.
I couldn’t find a pattern for what I needed.
Of course, I could have bought skate covers, but where is the fun in that?!
So after much trial and error, adapting other footwear patterns, and a few wild leaps, the Bunny
Hop Skate Warmers were born… and no more cold toes!

These slip over boot covers stay over the skate with their own weight.
Choosing a superwash or synthetic yarn is suggested as they will get wet and need drying~
natural wool covers risk being felted (and shrinking!) in this repeated process.

Adapting this pattern up or down in size is as simple as adding stitches or subtracting enough
stitches to shift the pattern to fit the boot size. Math is not my strong suit, and since this is a free
pattern, I figured I would let you clever types do the calculations!

This pattern, as written, will fit girl’s figure skates from size 11 - 2.
