Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I had a really hard time getting the gauge. I am a tight knitter. But once I made adjustments they fit perfectly.

Same as previous comment - they look lovely, but have been unable to download. This is very frustrating - after finally finding the perfect free pattern and then being unable to download!!

Under materials you mention the "magic loop". I don't know what this is. Could you explain. Also do I use the 3.5 mm for the ribbing and the 4 mm for the rest? Thank you Nancy

Magic loop is a method of using a circular needle to knit in the round rather than 3 dbl. pointed needles. Even the smallest number of stitches can be magic looped. I LOVE this method- it is super fast and (for me) much easier than using multiple needles. You can YOU TUBE it and see if it would work for you.

I'm trying to find something like this for a 5-year-old. =(

No pattern available!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Jerry, Once you click 'Click here for knitting pattern' you'll be taken to the designer's page. Under the image for this pattern is a link for 'download now'. Please be aware this is a PDF pattern so you need Adobe Reader in order to open it. Hope this helps a bit. Happy knitting! editors of AllFreeKnitting

this is a great pattern...thank you. I did add 2 inch straps to the bottom of each so they wouldn't ride up when I put my boots on

I tried to download on a different computer and then had no problem getting pattern. Anxious to make, but first need to calculate cm to inches. ;-) Thank you!

They look lovely but I can't get them to download either, after many tries. Could you repost in .pdf form? Thanks.

I cannot get the pattern to display so I can print it. Help!

The link is working ok, please just try again; there might have been too many downloads at one time. Thanks!
