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!
