Idle Road Boot Toppers

♪ The Music ♪
Idle Road is a traditional Irish double jig that I first heard on Joanie Madden’s collection A Whistle on the Wind. It’s a lively, toe-tapping tune that will make your feet yearn to wander the idle roads.

Pattern Notes:
These cabled boot toppers are worked in the round from the bottom (wide ribbing) up. The front and back of the boot topper are identical. Size S is shown in the photographs; larger sizes are created by adding additional Honeycomb cable columns at the side of the boot topper. Each size has its own charts / written directions. Bind off is ‘in pattern’.

Both charts and written directions are provided.

A photo tutorial for the Estonian Cast On is included as a separate PDF.

The cable in these boot toppers matches that in the Lost Kingdom: Coimbra Fingerless Gloves.
