what is gauge on these? Also, what are the measurements of the two sizes?

It looks like the 14 middle knows are in stockinette therefore wouldn't it be knit 1 row, purl 1 row, etc? Thanks!

When you knit in the round Stockinette stitch is just knit

If I was going to use connecting needles, what length do you think I should use? the smallest I have is 16" but i think that will be too big.

Thank you for sharing this pattern! I made them today for a Christmas gift for my daughter.

Love this pattern. If I wanted to use DK yarn so not so thick for the boots that are a tighter fit, how to adjust the # of stitiches to cast on to make similar size?

Kim said...

Nice pattern. Thank you for sharing it. Might just need to whip up a pair today.

The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion. See the link below for more info.

Thanks for sharing the pattern.

I used a worsted weight yarn and size 8 needles and these are quite large ... too large for my teenage niece. I got a gauge of 4" = 20 sts on both the ribbed and stockinette sections. I'm going to try again with either a smaller needle or perhaps a reduced cast on. (Just remember to reduce by 4 to make the ribbing work.)

I made one yesterday and will make one today. I did the small (cast on 48) with a size 10.5 circular needle. I used leftover thick wool I have from knitting Icelandic Sweaters. Looks a little bulky. We were wicked smart ... did half one color and half another color so that it's reversible.
