A pair of short winter boots, just waiting to romp in the snow! No matter the weather, you can wash your dishes while dreaming of fun in the snow. This dishcloth square would also be a perfect addition to an afghan or blanket for anyone who loves the winter.
The design is not symmetrical, so adjustments might need to be made for lefty knitters, depending upon their style of knitting, and if it matters which way the toes of the boots are facing.
The picture is created in garter stitch on a stockinette background. The border is seed stitch, but the pattern is written so that you may substitute a preferred border if you wish.
