I recently bought a lovely 100% wool dress in a gorgeous shade of purple called Byzantium. It’s my favorite garment this autumn. It looks great with boots and black tights, but I felt like that outfit needed more accessories in the same color palate.
Boot inserts came to mind!
I’ve seen so many beautiful and chic ones on Pinterest; I especially liked knitted ones with cables. But since it has been a few years since I held knitting needles, I decided to go with crocheted ones.
I used Vickie Howell Sheep(ish) yarn (70% acrylic, 30% wool), Plum(ish) color and E/4-3.50MM hook. One ball was enough.
I started with ch 28 loosely. Sc in back ridge of second ch from hook and in each ch across (27 sc), ch 1 turn.
Then just sc in back loop only of each sc across (27 sc), ch 1 turn. I repeated this row until I got a piece long enough to fit around my calf (40 rows in total).
I folded the piece in half, right side inside, and stitched together using sc. Fastened off and turned the right side out.
