These fun toppers will jazz up your favourite pair of boots. They are worked with simple stripes and slipped stitches, only ever working with one strand per round. They can be worn either inside or outside the boot.

This pattern will adapt fairly well to different yarns and gauges. If your yarn is on the lighter worsted side of the scale I recommend going down a needle size or more.
