ABBREVİATİONS

HDC – Half Double Crochet
DC – Double Crochet
INC – Increase (2 stitches in 1 stitch)
DEC – Decrease (I use the invisible decrease stitch)
SS – Slip Stitch

NOTES
– Gauge is not important, but if you find you crochet loosely you may want to go down a hook size
– Due to the texture of the flutterby yarn tie a knot at the beginning of each piece of yarn before you start, this prevents the yarn from fraying at the ends
– All parts are made in the round except the scarf and boot cuffs
– Start with a chain of 2 instead of a magic ring, due to the texture of the yarn it makes it difficult to close the magic ring

Sew each boot cuff as above images onto each side of the boot. Pin each boot cuff to the top of the boot attached to the leg. (where pink boot joins the white leg). Sew the boot cuff securely along the pink/white edge of the boot/leg with the sewing needle and thread. Carry on along the whole edge of the boot cuff, overlapping boot cuff then fasten off the thread. See the image below.

Fold each boot cuff over towards the bottom of the boot. See the images below.
