Always handy to have a knitting project on a long journey.
These boot toppers were knitted on a long journey from one end of Australia to the other.

Cast on 54 stiches
K2, P2 to end
Continue ribbing for 9 rows
Row 1: *K4, YO, K3, P2* rpt to end

Row 6: as row 4
Repeat this pattern (Rows 1 - 6) a further 5 times.
Repeat K2, P2 ribbing for 9 rows and loosely cast off.
To join, I slipped stitched them together with a crochet hook which leaves a nice, neat edge. They can just as easily be sewn together though.
The finished topper is 6 inches long. If you need to make them any wider, cast on a further 9 stitches for each extra pattern repeat.
