Boot Cuffs

Boot Cuffs are trending.

A friend of mine wanted a pair of boot cuffs that would not be too bulky in her already tight fitting boots.  So I went to work and using a #3 weight yarn made her this pair.

I used Bernat Softee Baby Yarn. The colorway is Grey Marl.  I also used two sizes of crochet hooks F and E.

The cuffs are worked in the round from the top down. First I crocheted the ribbed top then added a row of sc, followed by rows of dc, then hdc and ending with a couple of rows of sc and finally a sl all the way around. I did decrease a few stitches in the sc rows to help ensure a good fit.

As you know, buttons are very expensive so here is a tip; check out your local thrift stores and antique malls for buttons.  The buttons on these boot cuffs were purchased from a local antique store for $1.00 and there were four buttons in the pack! How cool is that.....

Since the cuffs are a last minute Christmas gift, I haven't written the pattern down yet, but I did take good notes and will make the pattern available as soon as I can get it written.

In the mean time, here are a couple of pictures.
