I had a friend who was dying for some boot cuffs, and I've been wanting to figure them out for a while now. I agreed that if she would supply the yarn I would make up a couple of pairs for her. Turns out, they're super easy to make!
The Tan ones are a smaller version, the friend who they were for has very slim legs:
These grey ones were a gift for the friend who originally requested them. She bought the yarn and I tested out the pattern:
Sl St: Slip Stitch
Dc: double crochet
You will Need:
An H hook (5.0-5.0)
A worsted weight yarn, I used Caron Simply Soft, because that's what I had on hand!
1. Ch. 20
in second st from hook, dc 1.
2. dc 1 in each st (total of 18)
ch 2, turn
3. continue for 24 rows*. Sl st to join, leave the tail long.
4. Use a yarn needle to sew the edges of your rectangle together tightly, right sides facing.
tie off ends
5. scallop the edges--I found that 8-10 scallops looks best, I just tried to keep my scallops as even as possible as I worked my way around, making sure each scallop spanned the same number of the ends of the vertical rows**
*You can do more or less rows depending on the size of the leg you're using your boot cuff on. I found that 24 was the most versatile, but the tan boot cuffs only have 20 rows (for my friend with slim calves), and the blue has 25 rows.
**There are some great tutorials on how to scallop an edge, the best ones I found were here and here.
