Strictly Stylish Spats
This pattern is available to purchase as a PDF download here for £3.00
During the 1940s and 1950s, spats or ankle warmers were an affordable alternative to boots, keeping the ankles warm regardless of what footwear was worn. Can also be slipped off on arrival at your destination much easier than wellies can!
More elegant than the leg warmer, these spats replace the practical boot on smart occasions! A very simple knit, introducing the knitter to short row shaping, these spats knit up extremely quickly and look incredibly stylish.
Also available in as a kit including yarn, needles and pattern from www.shop.knitonthenet.com
