Boot cuffs are apparently the new fad. I would never have known what they were or thought to make them if my sister hadn't specifically requested them. After she explained what they were to me it was simple to come up with a design. The basic design has the same base, but with a choice of two different tops. I decided to do the base sideways because it allows more stretch in the cuff and can therefor fit different sized calfs more easily. The pattern below makes a cuff that is 12 inches in diameter that can stretch to comfortably fit a 14 inch calf. You may need to adjust the rows of the base depending upon the size of the calf. Each of the FREE patterns can be found below!
Oh, and remember, I am not the best at writing pattern instructions so if you have any questions please feel free to contact me through e-mail or on Facebook!
Instructions for the Base and Seam:
I used the single crochet front loop ridge stitch to make the base but you can easily just use a regular single crochet stitch.
The sides were connected using the slip stitch seam.
Here is a simple tutorial how to crochet a scalloped edge. I only skip one stitch and I use 6 instead of 5 dc, but the concept is the same!
I have no tutorial for this stitch. I do not even know what it might be called, but it is really simple only requiring chains and single crochets.
NOTE: If you choose to use two colors you either need to use the same color as the base to make the seam, or if you want to make the seam a different color like the picture above, you have to make it OPPOSITE so they will match properly!
