Quick to knit, and fun to wear, these boot toppers make a great gift knit. Each pair uses less than a skein of DK weight yarn. Add a pop of color to an outfit—or work them in a neutral shade for a smart, sophisticated look.

The cuffs are worked in the round, from the bottom up. Two crisp horizontal braids set off a band of beautiful Woven Stitch texture. Slip-stitch ribbing and a neat I-cord bind-off finish the upper edge.

Designed to fit with negative ease. Select a size that is 1 to 2” / 2.5 to 5 cm smaller than your calf circumference at its widest point.
