Pattern Notes

Each boot is made in 3 sections: The leg cuff, heel and then foot.
The leg cuff is made in one panel, sewn together and then the heel is made directly onto the cuff, working right into the foot.
The ch 3 at the beginning of the row will count as the first dc stitch. When finishing the next row, dc in between the ch2 and first dc to create the last stitch. This will create a smooth edge on end of the row and a smooth join for each row.
The sl st at the end of each row will not count as a stitch.
You will create 2 of each size to complete the set.
Special Technique – Cable: When the pattern instructs to ‘cable’ you will fptr in the following order over the next six stitches. (456, 123)
