NEW Polka Dot Sheep Pattern: Barleycove

Knit in Madelinetosh Pashmina in Heuchera

Boots and skirts are a classic winter outfit. Polka Dot Sheep’s new pattern designed by Aimee Alexander, Barleycove, will complete the your look. Boot toppers (or cuffs) are the perfect marriage of winter warmth and style. For girls, Barleycove makes the perfect sized legwarmers.

On little legs, knit in Madelinetosh Pashmina in Antler

Aimee designed the Barleycove boot toppers using our latest Madelinetosh offering, Pashmina. Pashmina is a 75% Merino/15% Silk/10% Cashmere blend, very smooshy and luxurious.  The pattern is sized toddler, junior, adult small and adult large. To find the correct size to knit, measure the calf of the leg at the widest part and chose size based upon the measurement. As always with all our Polka Dot Sheep patterns, instructions are both charted and written and have been thoroughly tested and edited. They are knit in the round using your favorite method for small circumference knitting. At a finished height of 8″, the Barleycove boot toppers will knit up as quickly as your favorite fingerless mitts.
