This designer grew up in northern Canada, where dogsleds and mukluks were common sights. Her knitted and felted version of these rugged, warm boots can be embellished with embroidery, needle felting, or beading, and if you want to wear them outside, you can attach leather soles. The foot and cuff are knitted back and forth on two needles, and the furry midsection is worked in the round. Handsome on and off the tundra, she offers these mukluks in three standard sizes.
Finished Size: About 8 (9, 10)" (20.5 [23, 25.5] cm) foot length, after felting. To fit a woman's U.S. size 5/6 (7/8, 9/10) shoe. Shown in foot length 10" (25.5 cm).
Yarn: Plymouth Galway (100% wool; 230 yd [210 m]/100 g): #44 red, 5 (6, 6) skeins; small amounts of two other colors of worsted-weight wool for toe embroidery (optional). Plymouth Foxy (100% acrylic; 17 yd [15 m]/40 g): #04 gray, 6 skeins.
Yarn weight: #4 - Medium
Gauge: 10 1/2 sts and 14 rows = 4" (10 cm) in St st, and 12 sts and 18 1/2 rows = 4" (10 cm) in garter st, both gauges before felting and using a double strand of Galway on larger needle.
