Recently a lot of people have been searching online for the Hunter Dual Cable Knit Boot Toppers. However, I created a similar design many years ago, and it’s one that you can knit yourself! So, if you’re a knitter and you like this style, then you’ll want to check out this pattern. Moreover, if you’ve paid attention to the blog recently, then you might notice that this accessory matches some other patterns in my collection.

The Dual Cable Knit Accessories Collection
The dual cable knit boot toppers pattern is the perfect complement to the full accessories set which includes matching patterns for:
Each of these uses the Fair Isle cabling technique that combines two different colors curling around each other for a very eye-catching design. The cables are detailed and intricate and working on them gives you a chance to really level up as a knitter. They’re also super sophisticated. Worked in the neutral palette I’ve selected for the design, they give polish and finish to any outfit you pair them with.
You can easily mix-and-match all of the patterns. Wear the scarf and the boot toppers one day then wear the gloves and hat together the next. Pairing them up in different ways, occasionally wearing just one and then all four accessories together, you can go through an entire winter season creating entirely different looks.
Dual Cable Knit Boot Toppers
I’ve shown you two different ways that you can work with the dual cable knit boot toppers pattern. In this first example, I’ve used the same two-color design that I used in all of the other accessories. This has a bold look that really outlines the different cables in the design. However, if you want a subtler look, emphasizing texture over color, then you can work the cables in a single color instead. I didn’t show that off in the other accessories pattern in the set. However, as you can see, it works well. You could apply this information to the other dual cable knit patterns as well.
The boot toppers are designed to be knit for a perfect fit for any size. The instructions explain exactly how to achieve that goal. Like all boot toppers, these are a simple accessory that goes around the leg, tucking right into your boots. It looks like you’re wearing super cozy long socks, but you’re actually just accessorizing with a simple design instead. Wear them pulled straight up or cuffed over onto your boots.
Yak Wool for Cozy Accessories
This pattern originally called for a 50/50 blend of yak and cormo wool in sport weight yarn. Unfortunately, Bijou Basin Ranch, maker of that yarn, has closed down since I made this design. However, that gives you the opportunity to play with some fun yarn choices. Check out Expression Fiber Arts 50/50 yak merino blend and Etsy’s Bluewater Yarns yak yarn blends to get started. Feel free to play around with this. Since the design size is adjustable, you can easily substitute yarns for this pattern.

I originally designed this pattern as part of the 2013 KnitCrate Box. However, it’s now available for sale through Ravelry, where you can access all of the other dual cable knit patterns as well.
