Boot cuffs are just the thing to add a little spice to your style! Peeking just over your boot tops, they can be lacy, sporty, thick and warm, or delicate and feminine. Best of all, they are easy-to-knit tubes with minor shaping–no tricky foot as with a sock–so they knit up fast. They are great for trying out techniques like colorwork or lace on a small scale. And, of course, they are super-cute to wear and sure to draw comments wherever you go.
Pam Powers, author of Dress-to-Impress Knitted Scarves, brings her impeccable sense of style to this collection of 25 boot cuffs and leg warmers. You will want to make a pair (or two) for every day of the week.
