It has been a long cold winter here in the south. Ok, cold is a relative term when it comes to weather in the south. But it has been cold for the south. I love fall and winter because it means I get to pull out my boots. It’s way to hot to wear anything other than shorts and flip-flops in the summer. Fall and winter is when I get to wear some fashion. My favorite fashion to wear in the winter is my boots and a pair of boot cuffs. Today I’m sharing with you a basic crochet boot cuff pattern.
Crochet Boot Cuff Pattern:
Chain 46 *Wrap the chain around your calf in the place you want the boot cuff to rest. If the chain fits around your leg snuggly it is the right size. If the chain is too tight, add 2 more chains, continue until the chain fits snuggly around your leg.*
Row 1 ~ Half double crochet into the second chain from the hook. Half double crochet into each chain to the end. Chain 2 and turn your work.
Row 2 – 6 ~ Half double crochet into each stitch across. Chain 2 and turn your work.
Row 7 ~ Half double crochet into each stitch across. Chain 3 turn your work.
Row 8 ~ Skip 2 half double crochet. Single crochet into the 3rd half double crochet from the beginning of the row. *Chain 3, skip next two half double crochet, single crochet into 3rd half double crochet* repeat from * to * till the end of the row. Chain 1 and turn your work.
Row 9 ~ Create 4 single crochets into the chain 3 space you created in row 8. Slip stitch into the single crochet you created in row 8. Repeat to the end of row 9. Tie off, do not weave in ends.
Make sure you leave a very long tail of yarn to “sew” your boot cuff together.
Thread your tapestry needle on the end of your long tail of yarn. First finish off the last stitch you made.
Hold both ends of the boot cuff together and begin sewing from one side to the other.
Weave in all left over ends. This completes the crochet boot cuff pattern!
To wear your boot cuffs; put them on before your boots and tuck the cuffs into the tops your boots.
