New Knitting Pattern - the Marlow Boots

Finally!! I've forced myself to sit at the laptop, checking and re-checking numbers, words and photos for long enough to be able to get this pattern listed on Etsy. Its been a work in progress for a looooong time :(
I love designing something, but I don't love writing it up, so these sat in my knitting bag for so long that I had a hard time deciphering all my initial scribbles, so basically I just had to start over, re-knit and make myself type at the same rate as I knit. Thankfully its all done now, checked, tested and up for sale.
They are so cute and easy to make.
I knew I wanted to design a pair of boots that looked a bit like the Jaden Boots
but that were a lot easier to make. Although Jaden are knit flat, they use a circluar needle to get round the cuff, and that initmidates some people, so these new boots needed to be worked on straight needles only.
The new Marlow Boots are based on skulduggery and deception!! They look as though they have a side opening, but when you look real close...... it's false !! They just pull on.
This makes them a whole lot easier to knit, and as they are worked entirely in garter stitch, they are great for intrepid beginners, as well as more experienced knitters who just want something relatively simple, but modern to knit whilst watching TV.
If you want to have a go, the pattern is for sale on Etsy.

Let me know what you think of them.................Julie

    1. Thank you, Joan and Marit. Linda, you've just given me a brilliant idea. If I re-designed them smaller, they would make great car hangy things!

  3. Oh I wish I could knit, or had a baby to knit for when I see these adorable booties. They would be so cute hanging from the rear view mirror of a car. Great job designing them. And great job writing up the instructions!

  4. I love this pattern! and I bought it right away ;) I play to make some up this weekend, I will be sure to post a picture or two for you!
