Due to popular demand, we have added one more pattern to our On The Rocks series, which celebrates the great outdoors in typical Canadian style. This week’s design is all about keeping the cold out with a pair of thick and chunky boot toppers. They knit up ultra quick in Sirdar’s Harrap Tweed Chunky, a speckled yarn spun in a wool/nylon blend, now available at your lys in a range of eight rustic shades.
Wear Toppers On The Rocks two different ways! Fold back over boot cuffs (shown above) or as cosy legwarmers to tuck inside winter boots (shown below).
