A companion set of Boot Toppers to go with the Muir Glenn Thistle Hat, available on Ravelry, and a “tip of the tam” to Scotland. Three sizes, Small, Medium (shown) and Large, go by finished cuff measurement or the really easy way, slim legs (small), average legs (medium) and heavy calves (large). The cuffed version will be a little snugger, the un-cuffed a bit looser. Length can be easily adjusted by knitting the ribbed section longer than recommended, both are written to 9 inch length, but folded topper ends up being 5 inches after folding. Remember to adjust the amount of MC - Main Color if making them longer.
