Socks are time consuming knits. Especially over the knee socks, like Welly Socks, designed to line your rubber Wellies or any knee high boot.

But come on – what we like most about Welly Socks isn’t the fact that they are socks, it’s that they fold over our boots and give us a fun pop of color between boot and pant. So with this pattern I’ve cut out the sock entirely and designed a leg warmer that folds over the top of your boots. Fabric covered buttons make these even more fun than the original.

And bonus! You will have downright WARM calves.

Worked in bulky yarn and size 11 double pointed needles, these puppies are such a quick knit you’ll want to make a different color for each day of the week.
