Can be worn from the ankle to calf depending on the height of your boots. These easy ribbed boot cuffs work up super quick with worsted weight yarn and a size H/5mm hook. Add buttons to embellish if you'd like, or keep them simple. The choice is yours!
This pattern is done alternating single crochet and double crochet rows, with odd numbered rows being single crochet and even numbered rows being double crochet. Your last row will be an odd number so it can be seamed to connect it to the initial row.
These directions are for 5.5” long boot cuffs with a 10” circumference (10” that will stretch to 14.5” so it can fit calves between that range) For a longer boot cuff to cover more of your leg, just add more to your starting chain. For it to be larger or smaller around, just do more or fewer rows, ending on an odd row (BLSC).
Ch – chain
BLSC – back loop single crochet
BLDC – back loop double crochet
Instructions for back loop single/double crochet: There are two loops to each stitch. Back loop crochet just means you make the stitch only in the back loop and leave the front loop free. Such as BLSC, all this is, is a normal single crochet, it is just done only in the back loop. This is what gives stretch/ribbing to your boot cuffs. Search Google or Youtube for back loop crochet if you need visual instructions, these are super helpful for learning new stitches!
Row 1: BLSC in 2nd chain from the hook, continue across, Ch 2 and turn
Row 2: BLDC each stitch across, Ch 1 and turn
Row 3: BLSC each stitch across, Ch 2 and turn
Row 4 – 26: Repeat rows 2 and 3, alternating rows of BLDC and BLSC, even rows being BLDC and odd rows being BLSC. At end of Row 26, Ch 1 and turn
Row 27: BLSC each stitch across, at end of the row cut the yarn about 8” long to make a tail, pull the tail through the last loop and pull tight. Put the tail end through the eye of the yarn needle. You can now use this tail of yarn to sew the ends of the boot cuff together. When sewn across securely, weave in the end and cut off excess yarn.
Now do this all again to make a second one. You can sew on a few buttons to the top to embellish it, or leave it plain as is. Looks good either way and keeps your legs warm under your boots
