Double-Quick Boots (Free PDF Knitting Pattern)
Using a double strand of aran/bulky-weight yarn truly makes this a quick knit.
The cuff and heel portion is knit flat; work is then joined in the round to work the foot and the toe. The heel and back cuff as well as the front cuff are sewn together once the knitting is finished.
Foot length: 8¾ (10, 11¼)” / 22 (25.5, 28.5)cm.
Height: 10 (10 ½, 11)” / 25.5 (26.5, 28)cm.
