Boots give the finishing touch to your outfits! Sylvanians and Calico Critters are not supplied with footwear and these adorable boots and socks give your figurines that touch of Ah! The purple socks are for beginners and are knitted with regular 4-ply sock yarn and 2mm (UK size 14) needles, found in most stores. The remainder, a challenge for the keen knitter, need 1ply or fine 2ply yarn, or for the yellow boots for the littlest animals a single strand of embroidery thread and require 1.5mm or 0.875mm needles, all available from Woolly Woodlanders. These boots and socks are sure to delight all collectors and young owners. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit with very thin needles (1.5mm,0.85mm) GAUGE With 0.875mm needles and 1ply yarn try to achieve a gauge of 16 sts to 1 inch, with 1.5mm needles you should achieve 12 sts to 1 inch. Because of the small number of stitches used, the slight difference in the gauge of a fraction of a st more or less in an inch should not make much difference. However, do check that the garment fits your chosen animal, as the families do vary somewhat in size. SUGGESTED YARN 20 yards of Lace weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN any COLORWAY You choose!
