With fall and winter quickly approaching (although, unfortunately, it doesn't quite feel like fall in California), I'm starting make more and more cold-weather accessories. There's something about cold weather that makes me really excited about crocheting--snuggling up in your crochet nook, sipping on tea, listening to your favorite music--sounds like the perfect way to spend an afternoon.
I came up with this super cute boot cuff pattern. They're perfect for keeping your legs warm while looking stylish too! The pattern allows them to be adjustable to you, and you can make them in any color you like. The gauge is not important for this project. You may sell the finished project, but please reference and link this post. Please do not copy and post this pattern and claim it as your own.
You can purchase this item from my Etsy Store.
Materials:Size I crochet hook (5.50 mm)
Two brown buttons
Loops & Threads Impeccable Aran Yarn (less than one skein)
Abbreviations:ch = chain
dc = double crochet
hdc = half-double crochet
sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch
Top portion of cuff:Ch 11
Row 1:Starting from second ch from hook, hdc in each ch across. Ch 1 and turn (10 hdc)
Row 2:Work 10 hdc across. For the knit ribbed effect, make the hdc in the loop below the stitch you would normally do the hdc in. Ch 1 and turn at the end of each row.
Repeat Row 2 until it fits around your calf (usually around 30 rows)
Fold the piece in half and sl st the end with the beginning to make a circle. Fold the piece inside out so the seam is on the inside. Turn on its side; you will now be working in rounds.
Bottom portion of cuff:
Round 1:Ch 1. Sc evenly around (however many rows you made for the ribbed portion). Sl st with beginning sc to join.
Round 2:Ch 4 (counts as dc and ch). Dc in same space as the join. *Skip 2 sc. (Dc, ch 1, dc) in next sc.* This is the V. Repeat from * around. Sl st to join in top of ch 4 to join. It's okay if you don't have exactly 2 sc to skip between the last V and the top of the chain 4.
Round 3-7:Ch 4. Dc in same space as join. *(Dc, ch 1, dc) in space between Vs* Repeat from * around. Sl st in top of ch 4 to join.
Round 8:Ch 1. Sc in each dc and ch 1 space around. Sl st in ch 1 to join. Fasten off. Weave in ends with the tapestry needle.
Sew on brown button with the white thread near the top (ribbed section). I put mine where the seam was.
