  • Comfy and cozy Prairie Boots will get you through the coldest of winters. Turn them down for ankle length or leave them up to keep your shins warm. You don’t need to seam – just add funky buttons and they are ready to wear. Warning: it is so fun to watch them take shape on your needles that you may become addicted. But that’s okay, they make great gifts!

    Skills Needed

    Knitting in the round on two circ needles (see for a video).


    Women’s Shoe Sizes

    • small (5-6.5)
