This isn’t the boot cuff that I have had real issues with but, I did want to share this one too. I hope you enjoy! Please let me know if there are any issues or problems! Constructive criticism is always welcomed.
I am entering this pattern on “Hooking on Hump Day”. Here is the link:
- I used I Love This Yarn medium (4) worsted weight. The color I used was ivory.
- Crochet Hook Size – H
- Tapestry needle for weaving in the ends.
ch – chain
st – stitches
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet
Gauge: 9 stitches and 3 Rows = approximately 2 inches.
Top Portion of Boot Cuff (Updated 02-16-13) I added row 4.
Row 1: Ch 11 turn
Row 2: Sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across, ch 3 turn. (10 st) (ch3 counts as first dc here and throughout)
Row 3: skip 2nd sc ,dc in next st, dc in skipped sc, *skip next sc, dc in next sc, dc in skipped sc* across to last sc and dc in last sc. Ch 1 turn (10 st)
Row 4: sc in first st and across. ch 3 turn (10 st)
Repeat row 3 and 4 until the desired measurement ending with row 3 and fasten off leaving a long tail.
Join ends together using the long tail and take the side just fastened off using the tapestry needle to sew the front loop only of the stitch and the bottom loop of each sc on the first row. Fasten off and weave in the ends.
Bottom Portion of Boot Cuff
Row 1: Join to cuff by ch 1 and sc evenly around, sl st into first sc (not the ch 1). (Hint) You will later be decreasing stitches so be sure that your stitches will divide by 4 evenly then add two more sc. (Example: Sc 40 stitches plus 2=42 stitches around.) 42 will actually be a good number to use on the average size cuff.
Row 2: ch 2, dc into next sc and around, Sl st in top of ch 2 st.
Row 3: ch 1 and sc in same sp, sc in next dc and around, sl st in first sc.
Row 4: ch 2, dc into next sc and around, Sl st in top of ch 2 st.
Row 5: ch 1 and sc in same sp, sc in next dc and around, sl st in first sc.
Row 6: ch 2, dc into next sc and around, Sl st in top of ch 2 st.
Row 7: ch 1 and sc in same space, sc in next 3 stitches, *skip next sc, sc in next 4 st*, repeat from * to * across, sl st in first sc.
Row 8: ch 2 and hdc in sc and around, sl stitch in top of ch 2 st.
Row 9: ch 1 and sc in same sp, sc in next hdc and around, sl stitch in first sc. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Add buttons if desired.
