Boot Cuffs Crochet Pattern...Free!

free crochet boot cuffs pattern

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:

Key:
Sl St: Slip Stitch
Dc: double crochet
ch: chain

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!

Pattern:
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.

  2. My granddaughter loves to wear boots. I bet she would love these. I'm going to make her a pair or two. She's only 13 and a very girlie girl.

  3. Well, I think those looks adorable over narrow & slim calf boots.

  4. Do you think these would look good for a lady that has a 14 in. calf? Also, does the scalloped edge fold over if you wear them for a long day long like some of the boot cuffs I see pictured on Pinterest?
