A 1 skein project
Beginning double knitting technique
These reversible ski gaiter and boot toppers use both ends of the yarn and are double knit to create warmth and wind resistance. Stuff the inside pocket with fleece or roving to create a gaiter or boot top that can withstand even the coldest of climates. Boot toppers prevent cold air from entering boots and ski chaffing from the boots. Just as practical as they are beautiful!

I am a knitting instructor, published designer and mother of 2 teenage girls.
I am obsessed with knitting, love vegetable gardening and cooking.
My designs can be seen in over a dozen books and magazines as well as my "How To" knitting articles.
My latest endeavor is taping some "How To" knitting DVD's. So new that they are still in the editing stages.
