I saw these ice skates in a shop. They looked pretty easy to make so I tried to make them myself at home. It was really easy so I made a bunch to make christmas cards.





I used small paperclips, but you can modify the pattern to match the size of your paperclip.

Attach the yarn to your hook with a slip knot.
Attach the yarn to the paperclip with a slip stitch, starting at the blunt side of the paperclip.
Make 5 single crochet stitches.
At the end of the row, make 1 chain stitch.
Turn your work around and make 5 single crochet stitches.
Make 1 chain stitch, turn your work around, make 3 crochet stitches. Repeat this step until the boot is big enough (I did 4 rows).
Cut yarn and thread through the last stitch. Weave in the ends of the yarn.
With a different color, make laces by pulling yarn trhough the stitches.

This is my first pattern so if I made any mistakes or if anything is unclear, please ask.
I would love to see pictures of other ice skates!

super cute,  Cheesy those are great for small gifts that could be hand made ornaments. Nice job!
