These cute welly toppers were originally featured in Knit Now issue 10. They have proved to be a popular pattern and are quick and easy to knit.
Knitted in the round from the bottom up, they feature a stranded pattern of ducks (for farmers) and flowers (for hippies at festivals) and a striped ribbed cuff that holds them in place on the welly boot.
For this pattern I used Woolyknit British Naturals DK yarn which comes in lovely shades of sheep! I love the way the colours compliment each other and it was lovely yarn to knit with. It is very reasonably priced at £2.50 for 50g. These welly toppers would also look great in bright colours - check out the Ravelry projects to see some already knit!
They are great fun to wear in the summer at festivals and this recent snowy weather has made me get out my welly boots again and they are fantastic at keeping my legs warm!
