Transitions Boot Cuffs

Are you bored with what’s on your needles?  Need a fresh project to get your year started?  Knit Picks has the answer with their new collection: Petite Presents — a knitter’s stashbusting dream!  30, count ’em, 30 colorful, fun projects that you will actually be happy to make & give as gifts ….. or keep!  From cowls to cozies, socks to scarves, mittens, hats and shawls galore.  Even a clock!  Then there is my personal favorite, the Mini Kitty Poufway too cute.

In Shades of Brown

I designed the Transitions Boot Cuffs using 5 colors arranged from lightest to darkest.  Knit in the round, they are stranded, using only 2 colors at a time.  A Latvian braid finishes off this boot topper.  Jazz up any outfit or just shrug off the winter doldrums.

Petite Presents is available through Knit Picks as a high quality paperback or downloadable eBook, or each pattern is available separately.  Currently priced at $14.99, that’s just 50 cents a pattern!

In Pink, Black & Shades of Gray

The cuffs are knit using Knit Picks Palette which is a 100% Peruvian Highland Wool in fingering weight, available in 150 Colors!  For the brown cuff, I used Grizzly Heather, Rooiboos Heather, Lynx Heather, Wheat Heather and Coriander Heather.  The Pink cuff uses Asphalt, Ash, Cosmopolitan, Silver and Cream.
