Scalloped Boot Cuffs Pattern





I've been on a boot cuff kick lately. It's not all I've been working on though! I've been working on a Superman scarf (very similar to the Batman scarf) and designing a pattern for a chevron infinity scarf, mitered square blanket, and headbands. It's all coming soon, so stay tuned. In between all that, boot cuffs have been a nice quick project to work on. I love how versatile they are with the color/designs. Great fall/winter accessory!

If you use this pattern, you may sell your finish product, but please do not sell the pattern or claim the pattern as your own. If you do sell the finished item, please link this page. I love seeing peoples' finished work! You put them on on Ravelry or post them on my Facebook page. Let me know if any instructions are unclear or if you have any issues. Happy crocheting!

Materials:
Size H crochet hook (5.00 mm)
Tapestry needle
Tan thread
Two brown buttons
Loops & Threads Impeccable Soft Taupe yarn (less than one skein)


Abbreviations:
ch = chain
dc = double crochet
hdc = half-double crochet
sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch


Notes:
Make two.

Bottom portion of cuff:
Ch 26. If you want a shorter or longer boot cuff, you may change the number of chains. This cuff measures 7.5 inches in length. It's long enough to stay down in your boots and keep your legs warm while still peeping out the tops.

Row 1:
Starting from second ch from hook, hdc in each ch across. Ch 1 and turn (25 hdc)

Row 2:
Hdc in the loop below the stitch you would normally do the hdc across all 25 hdc. Ch 1 and turn.

This gives the knit ribbed effect. It's a really nice variation of the traditional crochet ribbing. See the pictures below for clearer instructions.






Row 3-32:
Repeat Row 2. This fits around my calves with a little bit of stretch. You can add more or less rows to adjust the size as you see fit.

Do not fasten off. Fold the piece in half and sl st the piece together. Insert the hook in the back loop of the regular stitch (as opposed to the one you've been crocheting in) and the front loop of Row 1. Do not turn it inside out. Turn your now circular piece on its side. You will now be working in a rounds.

Scalloped portion of cuff:

Round 1:
Ch 1 and evenly sc 34 around the cuff. Sl st in first sc to join. That number is important for the shells.

Round 2:
Ch 1. Sc in same space as join. *Skip 2 sc. 5 dc in next sc. Skip 2 sc. Sc in next sc.* Repeat around from * to * ending on 5 dc in the last sc.

Round 3:
Ch 1. Sc in same space as join. *Skip 2 dc. 5 dc in next dc (top of shell). Skip 2 dc. Sc in next sc.* Repeat around from * to * ending with sc in last sc to join. Fasten off and weave in all ends with the tapestry needle.

Sew on a button right where the ribbed portion meets the scalloped portion of the cuff.




Please let me know if you have any questions about the pattern!

  6. These are GORGEOUS! Thank you for sharing! I had a quick question about the slip stitching after folding it in half. When you say the front loop of row 1, are you talking about the very edge where the starting chain was located, or the first ridge where Rows 1 and 2 meet? Thanks again!

    1. Katie,

      Thank you for the comment. You're welcome, I hope you like it! To answer your question, when going through the front loop of Row 1, go through the first ridge where Rows 1 and 2 meet. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions about the pattern.

  10. Hello;

    I am looking at starting my own business, for crochet product, but am unsure of what I can sell and can not sell. I want to start small, like how you did, boot cuffs and scarves, etc.

    What is the best way for me to start, because I am interested in selling at Farmers Markets and on the internet, but I don't want to steal someone else's design..

    Thank you!

  11. Thanks for the pattern. I have a question about the scalloped portion. I am a little confused as to Row 2.
    *Skip 2 dc. 5 dc in next sc. Skip 2 sc. Sc in next sc.* Repeat around from * to * ending on 5 dc in the last sc.
    Do I skip 2 SC from rnd 1 then DC,5 DC, skip 2 SC, SC or Do I need to skip 1 then 2 DC...?
    Also if I made this for a larger leg how many rows should I increase by to end with 5 DC when I do the top? If I am calculating correctly ending with the 5DC's will put you at 32 sts

    1. Sorry, there's actually a typo, thanks for bringing it to my attention. It should start with "*skip 2 sc" instead of "skip 2 dc."
      *You skip 2 sc from Round 1, then make 5 dc in the next stitch. Skip 2 sc, then make 1 sc in the next stitch. Repeat around from * you don't need the extra dc.
      If you are making it larger, you will just need to increase the amount of sc you make in Round 1 after you join the ends together. It should be the same amount of rows you made.
