This is a pattern I came up with inspired by my experiences living through many Candian Winters.  Even though I complain all winter and talk about moving somewhere where the sun shines all year round, I truly am a winter girl at heart.  I love winter sports and can't imagine anything cozier than coming in from the cold, sitting by a nice warm fire, and sipping hot cocoa with my Mush Boots on my feet!  

The felting process makes these boots extra cozy and warm, and to keep things simple, they are knit in garter stitch from the bottom up.  The pattern includes detailed instructions and photos throughout, including detailed felting instructions.  This pattern is designed for the intermediate knitter, or the adventurous beginner.  Techniques used in this pattern include knitting in the round, picking up stitches, short-rows, cable cast-on and buttonholes.  

You can find video tutorials on my blog for the following more complicated techniques by clicking on the chosen title below, or you can browse through them all under the Knitting Help tab at the top of this page:

  1. Hi,
    I really love how these look, being from northern Minnesota I know how cold it can get. I was wondering how difficult this pattern is. I have really only scarves and I'm working on my first pair of mittens right now. Is this something a beginner can make?

  2. Some of the techniques within the pattern are a bit more advanced, but I have had many adventurous beginners knit them. I would recommend watching the tutorial videos above that go through a few of the more complicated techniques to see how comfortable you feel with them.
