Knitted BottiesÂŽ Fre e b a s i c instructions for blended yarns 50 g / 125 m Needle size 4-4.5

Design: Dagmar Scholz

For this model you will need:

Crochet hook 3 mm; double pointed knitting needles 3.5 mm, and for sizes D-G circular needles with a short cable; wool needle; fabric clips; tailor‘s wax, if necessary 1 pair of Botties soles

Matching insoles, e.g. felt insoles, 10 mm thick

Kids XXS / XS / S / M / L = approx. 50 g Kids XL and Adukts XXS / XS / S / S+/ M/ L / XL = approx. 100 g


YA R N R E C O M M E N D AT I O N Composition: Blended yarns (virgin wool/acrylic) with a yardage of: 50 g/125 m — Needle size: 4-4.5 mm Tension: 10 x 10 cm = 22.5 sts and 36 rows in stockinette stitch Knit a tension swatch before starting, as it is crucial to work with the exact tension to obtain the perfect fit for your Botties®. If in your swatch there are more stitches to 10 cm, use bigger needles; if there are less, use smaller needles.

HINTS

① Yarns that can be torn easily by hand aren’t durable enough for Round 0. Please use a more resistant yarn in a similar colour (e.g. waxed thread), before continuing with your yarn of choice. ② Cotton is very resistant, but tends to wear out quickly. You can compensate this by washing your Botties® quite often. We recommend you work your knitted Botties® with a yarn that has a high percentage of polyacrylic and/ or wool.

③ These instructions were written assuming that you wear your Botties® with 10 mm thick felt insoles. The insole raises the foot for a better fit. If you’d like to wear your Botties® with thinner insoles, start decreasing in the 1st round. For children, work the smaller size according to the instructions. ④ Heel cap: In case you need more holes to fixate your shoe to the sole, you can add the necessary number using punch pliers.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS Stockinette stitch in the round: knit all stitches Rib stitch in the round: *knit 1, purl 1*, repeat all across Right leaning decrease before the centre stitch: knit 2 or 3 stitches together Left leaning decrease after the centre stitch: Simple left leaning decrease: Slip one stitch knitwise, then slip it back on the left needle and knit it together with the following stitch. For the left leaning double decrease: Slip one stitch knitwise, then another. The stitches turn and the second stitch lies in front of the first. Slip the two stitches back on the left kneedle and knit them together with the following stitch. Always pull the yarn tight when decreasing at the centre. Stretchy bind-off: Knit one stitch and slip it back on the left needle. Then *knit two stitches together, return the resulting stitch back to the left needle*. Repeat from * to * until there is only one stitch left. Cut the yarn, pull it through and weave in the end. Knitting with double pointed needles: Distribute the stitches evenly onto four needles, with the front and back centre stitches in the centre of one needle respectively.


Explanation of the chart The charts show the sections in which decreases are worked. Empty squares do not represent any stitch as they are the result of the decreases. Read the chart right to left. Decreases are worked just before or after the stitches marked with bold numbers. Tip: Marking those stitches when casting on makes it easier to sew the boot to the sole later.

SEWING THE BOOT TO THE SOLE – ROUND 0 Crocheting around the sole: Hold the sole with the heel facing you. Insert the crochet hook from the inside to the outside of the central hole on the bottom row, and pass the yarn through the hole. Now insert the crochet hook through the hole on top of the first hole from the outside to the inside; wrap yarn over hook, pass the yarn through the hole and finish working the single crochet. Repeat this for the rest of the heel. Work all the stitches in the holes beyond the heel in single crochet, then close the round with a slip stitch. Tip: Crocheting around the sole is easier if you wax the yarn with tailor’s wax. Sewing the boot to the sole: Carefully steam-block the knitted boot, especially the decreases in the front. Pin the cast-on round to the sole, matching the heel mark to the centre stitch in the back, the tip of the foot to the centre stitch in the front, and the marked stitches on the side placed evenly on either side of the sole. Now use the blanket stitch to sew the boot to the upper edge of the crocheted round, starting at the heel. To do so, pass the needle back to front trough the crochet stitch, then front to back through the cast-on round of the knitted boot, and back to front through the resulting loop. Pull the yarn tight. You can also use an overlock stitch to fixate the boot to the sole.
