Top Portion of Boot Cuff
Row 1: dc in third ch from hook and in each ch across, ch 3 turn. (12 st) (ch3 counts as first dc here and throughout)
Row 2: dc in next two dc, work sideways cluster, *skip next dc, dc in next two dc, work sideways cluster repeat from *1 more time across to last dc, dc in top of ch 3, ch 3 turn. (12 st.)
Row 3: dc in next dc, dc in next 2 st of top of sideways cluster, dc in next dc, *dc in next 2 st of top of sideways cluster, dc in next dc, *repeat 1 more time and across to last dc, dc in top of ch 3, ch 3 turn. (12 st.)
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until the desired measurement ending with row 3. Fasten off leaving a long tail.
Turn pattern wrong side out and 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. Turn pattern right side in before working the bottom part of the cuff.
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 in 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 in 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 in 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 sts, *skip next sc, sc in next 4 st*, repeat from * to * across, sl st in first sc.
Row 8: ch 2 and hdc in next sc and around, sl st in top of ch 2 st.
Row 9: ch 1 and sc in same sp, sc in next hdc and around, sl st in first sc. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Add buttons if desired.
