WHAT YOU’LL NEED

16” circular needles or double point needles in size US 8 (5mm) or needle size needed to achieve gauge
1.5 skeins of Sirdar Crofter chunky yarn (approx. 120 yards) in a colour of your choice.
A tapestry needle to weave in your ends.
1 stitch maker.

Gauge is important for this product so I highly suggest making a sample swatch before beginning your project.

Gauge was measured in stockinette stich. 4” = 12sts or 1”=3sts

SIZING

These boot socks measure 7.5“ tall and 5.5 “ wide when lying flat. They are sized to fit small to medium size adult calves. If you need smaller or larger size you can add or subtract stitches by 4 . (example: cast on stitches for a 40 stitches larger size. 32 stitches for a smaller size) . Keep in mind the boot socks do stretch so, the average size should fit most.

 

THE PATTERN

Make 2:

Cast on 36 stitches using long tail cast on.

Check to see your stiches are not twisted, and once all your stitches are pointing in the right direction, place your stitch marker and start round one.

Round 1-9: *K2,P2*; Repeat from * until the end of the round.

You will now have 9 rounds of ribbing.

Round 10-30 Knit the entire roundIMG_2272

Round 31-38 *K2,P2*; Repeat from *until the end of the round.

Bind off loosely

If you would like a longer boot cuff you can increase the number of stockinette rounds ( rounds 10-30) until you are satisfied with the length.
