Be groovy and make these: Boots Free Knitting Pattern

Christmas Crafts, Clothing, Knitting Patterns

Ahh. Finally another problem in my handmade work resolved, with this groovy  Boots Free Knitting Pattern.  Remember A little while ago I found these absolutely great crocheted boots (free crochet pattern #7 on the list in my prior article)? However, to my dismay, the Etsy girl who used to make them, decided she was ‘done’ selling the pattern.  That was a problem for some of my readers.  Meanwhile, I’d received quite a few responses of readers asking for another free crochet pattern for groovy slipper boots just like those in that article.

So today I am so happy to share this new boots free knitting pattern that is very cool. These style boots are called mukluks.  They are high, soft boots that are worn in the American Arctic. They are traditionally made from sealskin, and handcrafted by the Inuit and Yupik peoples who live there. So, that’s a bit of history for you, making your boots more interesting (wink).

This here is a knitting pattern – note: not a crochet pattern – but it will sure look just as good.

Like to have the groovy boots free knitting pattern featured here?!  I like ‘m because they look comfy and fun. They are highly individual.  Having said this, they are quit popular today.  I know, Oprah has been wearing (crochet) boots on her show. And American and Italian shoe & fashion designers, such as Salvatore Ferragamo, have been liking crochet & knitted wear in their collection.

And there are loads of famous folks who go ga-ga over crocheted and knitted wear these days. OK, very good. The fashion mongals like knitting and crochet, and so do we.

There are 3 style details that set these boots apart:

A. a decorative colorful lace at the front

It can’t be all that hard to incorporate these ideas into your project.
