This is an attempt to try a new felted boot that is a hand knitted pattern by Drops Design. It is Drops 112-43. You can see it at this link. http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/us/pattern.php?id=4111&lang=us
The boot is knitted with two strands of alpaca and it is all one piece. It was very easy to make on the machine but I do not like the outcome. First of all, I only used one strand of wool just to make one and see how it was knitted and sewn together. There is a seam up the middle of the back of the foot and when sewn togeher, it leaves a point that did not felt flat. The front toe is finished with a straight edge, the edges are brought together and sewn and then you continue sewing up the top of the foot. There is sort of a circle pattern on the top of the foot and the toe comes out pointy. Next, the buttonhole is way too big and you can see that on their picture also. I have no clue why the strap is so long for the button to go on. I really think this is a cute boot and I will work on trying a better way of doing the buttonhole side and the toe. I do like the single thickness of this also. I can see how it would feel like a boot done with two strands of yarn.
