Wheatsheaf Boot Cuffs Pattern, Christmas Knitting Ideas

Wheatsheaf Boot Cuffs in Turquoise Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted

Wheatsheaf Boot Cuffs Knitting Pattern

I don’t know about you, but I hate cold ankles.  Especially where my bootcut or skinny jeans don’t reach the top of my shoes and there’s an annoying gap.   I tend to wear boot cuffs and they’re such a quick knit they also make a great Christmas Gift.  There, I’ve said it, the C word.  I’m sorry, but it’s got to be done.

The Wheatsheaf Boot Cuffs are a very quick knit, great for gifts (Christmas knitting alert!) and will help you use up some stash.   I used just over 200 yds of the Lamb’s Pride Worsted for the Turquoise pair of Wheatsheaf boot cuffs, using 5.5mm needles for the cables and 3.75mm needles for the ribbed cuff.    The purple pair of Wheatsheaf boot cuffs are made using Knit Picks WOTA Superwash and I dropped to 5mm needles for the cable section.    Super speedy and they fit over my welly boots, my ankle boots and even my wide fit knee high leather boots.

The Wheatsheaf Boot Cuffs match the Wheatsheaf Hat, Wheatsheaf Cowl and Wheatsheaf Mittens.  We also recently added the Wheatsheaf Aran Socks to the collection.

We recently released our Wheatsheaf Mitten Pattern, for sale on Ravelry.    I used some wonderful Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Worsted which was a gift from the lovely Joan Dyer.     The mittens use different needle sizes to achieve four sizes from Ladies Small/Child up to a Mens size.

The stash buster Wheatsheaf Mittens are a quick knit, a few evenings by the fire and are toasty warm.     Great for gifting and a chance to use up a bit of stash, you’ll need between 160-300 yards (depending on size and if you make the longer, folded cuff.

Last Minute Magic Cowl by Tanja Luescher

Last Minute Magic Cowl

My lovely friend, Tanja Luescher, released a fabulous pattern today.  It’s for the Last Minute Magic Cowl, is made using bulky/chunky yarn and 5mm needles.   It’s a super quick knit for those of you making Christmas or Holiday Gifts.   Tanja used some Eco-alpaca but this would be lovely in any chunky/bulky yarn and will fly off your needles.
