Sometimes your favorite knits are the littlest knits. These charming boot toppers will keep your feet on the ground and your fires stoked when the chill finds you from every possible direction.They will liven up dreary days with a bit of wooly color.
The Imbrex Boot Toppers work up quickly in the round and play with a mosaic slipped stitch pattern, so you need only manage one strand at a time.
