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.

  • Step 1

    Cast on 54 stiches
    K2, P2 to end
    Continue ribbing for 9 rows

    Row 1: *K4, YO, K3, P2* rpt to end
    Row 2: *K2, P8* rpt to end
    Row 3: *K2, K2tog, YO, K1, YO, SSK, K1, P2* rpt to end
    Row 4 (and all even rows) Knit all knit stitches and purl all purl stitches (Purl YO's)
    Row 5: *K1, K2tog, YO, Slip one, K2, PSSO, YO, SSK, 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.

  • Step 2

    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.
