Hello! Hello! Hello!
How are you all today? Having a good weekend I hope.
I’m giving you all a little treat this afternoon…
A free pattern for these wonderful boot cuffs I have designed! Smiles.
I created them to match the fingerless mitts, hat and collar style infinity scarf which you can find in my Etsy Store.
I have one more thing which I’m working on and then I promise no more basket weave stuff for a while.. (ho hum…) I’ve kinda been a little addicted to creating it.. I LOVE IT!!
Anyway… onto the FREE pattern!!
