Kinsman

I’ve got a quick new pattern to tell you about today! Meet Kinsman. (please queue and favorite on Ravelry!)

These boot toppers are kinda addictive. You know that feeling when you’re cold and you simply MUST knit something warm? We all know it’s illogical. Putting on an existing sweater would be a faster way to warm up.

Well these little boot toppers are so quick you really can cast on, and have something warm to wear almost instantly. Knit out of Fleece Artist BFL Aran on size 8 needles this project goes quickly. And at 110 or 180 yards you probably have some extra aran weight yarn kicking around in your stash that could be kicking around on your boots keeping you warm instead.

I hope you’ll give them a try! They’re stylish AND cozy. There’s lace work on every round to give the edging that scalloped look. But it is only 2-4 rounds at a time so it’s never really tricky to keep track of what you’re doing.

  1. I don’t get it. How do they keep/make you warmer? How far down into the boots do they go? They’re very pretty but I don’t get how they function .. .

    • They’re really just leg warmers designed to pair with boots. Like fingerless mitts they won’t keep you warm all by themselves, rather they’re meant for layering.
