Okay so I have one ugg completed and ready to start the next. I decided to use blue yarn a wool/acrylic blend but I think a brown suede yarn would have had more of an "ugg" look. This pattern is pretty straight forward and is a pretty quick knit.
Main colour yarn, and contrast yarn.
21st x 28R = 10x10cm with needles 5mm
This boot is knit all in one piece, with a seam along the back of the leg and down the middle of the sole of the foot. The sole is knit in garter stitch (knit every row), the rest of the boot is knit in Stockinette stitch (knit RS, purl WS). Fits size 0-6 months.
CO 22 stitches with needles 5mm and MC, knit one row
With right side facing, begin to work the sole as follows:
R1: k1, yo, k9, yo, k2, yo, k9, yo, k1 (26 sts)
R2 and all subsequent WS rows: knit all stitches, but knit the yo’s twisted, i.e. into the back of the yarn over
R3: k2, yo, k9, yo, k2, yo, k2, yo, k9, yo, k2 (31 sts)
R5: k3, yo, k9, yo, k7, yo, k9, yo, k3 (35 sts)
R7: k4, yo, k9, yo, k5, yo, k4, yo, k9, yo, k4 (40 sts)
R9: k5, yo, k9, yo, k6, yo, k6, yo, k9, yo, k5 (45 sts)
After row 10, continue with MC in stockinette stitch for 8 rows
Shape the instep as follows:
R1: k26, ssk, turn work (ignore the remaining stitches on the needle for now)
R2: sl1, p7, p2tog, turn work (again ignore any remaining stitches)
R3: sl1, k7, ssk, turn
R4: sl1, p7, p2tog, turn
Repeat R3 and R4 4 more times.
R13: sl1, k7, ssk, knit to end of row, turn
R14: p19, p2tog, p to end of row
Now, with RS facing, knit 5cm of stockinette across all stitches.
Change to CC, knit 2 rows (garter stitch), then BO knit wise.
Sew back seam using mattress stitch.
With CC, make a fake stitch line down the ‘side seams’ and across the instep, to imitate Ugg boots (if required). Copyright 2009. All rights reserved.
