Editor’s Choice: Savannah boot liners by Pam Powers
As the snow melts, the mud moves in. Stay chic, warm, and dry with this boot liner knitting pattern by Pam Powers.
I don’t know about y’all, but I live in my Doc Martens until it’s socially unacceptable to keep wearing boots while everyone else is wearing flip flops and tank tops. In my younger days, I experimented with shoes to try and find my niche – but once I put on my first pair of Docs, it was like I found my soul mate. Or sole mate. (Haha.)
As the snow starts to melt in the northern hemisphere, the rains bring the mud. Where I live in southeastern England, the mud gets intense. I lived in Vancouver, Canada for a year, which also had aggressively muddy areas, and that’s when I discovered the beauty of boot liners.
You see, boots are sometimes not the best footwear for walking long distances. If you’re a serial hiker and photographer like me, that can pose a problem. Wearing boot liners solved all my problems and turned me into a brand new woman.
This boot liner knitting pattern is worked in the round from the top down in one piece, with a subtle but squishy cabled pattern that makes for a very comfy boot.
The designer recommends Brown Sheep Nature Spun Worsted, one of my favorite go-to yarns. This aran weight, 100% wool yarn is hearty and versatile, and stands up to a lot of abuse. It’s available in a range of shades from subtle neutrals to bright jewel tones. Seeing as I have several pairs of Docs in bright colors (purple, blue, and faux snake skin at last count), I’m going to opt to make these boot liners in Charcoal (N880), to go with every pair.
Once I have these knitted up, you can bet I’ll be back on the trails with my Docs, my camera, and my yarn. No boot chafing or cold drafts are going to get me down this spring – not with these cabled boot liners.
