Make these fabulous boot toppers and learn some new techniques in the process! These little gems begin with the Chinese Waitress Cast-On (found in Cap Sease's book *Cast On, Bind Off: 211 Ways to Begin and End Your Knitting*) proceed to the Italian Chain Ribbing, then on to a lateral braid. You'll switch to a Mock Cable pattern and finally end off with the SSK Bind-Off.
