LOOM KNIT TEXTURED BOOT TOPPERS/CUFFS

Richly Textured and Wooly...These Boot Toppers Will Keep You Comfy and Cozy all Winter and They Look Great Too!



These Boot Cuffs/Toppers take a little more time but are wonderfully textured and rich looking.  They make a great gift.  I designed these as a gift for my daughter.  When you get to rows 9-24 of your knitting the yarn will start to pull upward and it will seem like your toppers are getting shorter.  This is normal so don't worry, after blocking they lay flat and even but still retain all their texture. Please use natural fibers like wool for this pattern as they do require blocking to lay correctly. I have many other boot cuff/topper patterns on this blog! #freeloomknittingpatterns #loomknitboottopperpatterns #loomknitbootcuffs #loomknitbootcuffpatterns #boottoppers #bootcuffs #bootsocks

SUPPLIES:

Lamb's Pride Worsted in Charcoal Heather (You'll Want to use wool or other natural fiber because this pattern requires blocking to lay correctly)
Blue Knifty Knitter
Knitting Tool
Crochet Hook

PATTERN:

-Chain cast on all pegs using 2 strands as one.
-Rows 1-5: all rounds/rows; *k2, p2, k2, p2, repeat from *.
-Rows 6-8: all rounds/rows; e-wrap all pegs. *k2,  pull top loop down through bottom loop, pull off peg and put loop back on peg for two pegs, repeat from *.
-Rows 9-24: e-wrap all pegs then *k2, p2, k2, p2, repeat from *
-Rows 25-29:  e-wrap knit.
-Row 30: *e-wrap knit 2, Bobble, e-wrap knit 2, Bobble, repeat from *. See Bobble directions below.

BOBBLES:  This bobble is a one stitch bobble that gets knitted five times to form a small bobble. Reach the peg/stitch where you want your bobble to be. Knit on that peg 5 times. Take the last loop off the peg and hold it on your knitting tool. Reach down and bring back to the peg the very first stitch that was on the peg. Place the loop being held on the tool back on the peg. Peg has now 2 loops. Knit.

-Rows 31-33:  *k2, p2, k2, p2, repeat from *.
-Chain One Bind Off to preserve stretch. Encourage stretch before knotting off.
-Crochet Scallop Edge..I used one strand here as I wanted a small scallop but you can also use the two strands for a more noticeable scallop. Here's a good link if you don't know how:  Scallop Edge Video

-Block Boot Topper:  Wet with Cold Water. Squeeze excess water out. Now lay between towel layers and press to get out excess water.  Stretch around a container to even out stitches. I used a large mason jar to block mine. Don't over stretch, you just want it even from top to bottom!
