The ribbed boot cuffs crochet pattern was started about three years ago when I was focused on selling completed crochet items rather than pattern designing. After seeing several different styles in various retail stores, I decided that I should design a pair to offer in my online shop. Also, Michaels’ Loop and Thread Impeccable Yarn was relatively new to the stores, and I had to give it a try.
I had never made a pair of boot cuffs, so this was a chance to crochet something different. I often enjoy texture stitches that create depth and stretch that is easy to make, but looks complicated. I chose favorite autumn colors to make two pairs to match the items I most often wear during the fall and winter.
I look forward to seeing your Ribbed Boot Cuffs with your favorite boots in the ‘gram and FB. 🙂
Ribbed Boot Cuffs
-By Creations By Courtney-
Difficulty: Advanced beginner
Yarn: 93 yards (1.5 oz ) each of worsted weight in Color A and Color B, or 186 yards (3 oz) of worsted weight in one color
- ch: chain
- sc: single crochet
- slst: slip stitch
- hdc: half double crochet
- fsc: foundation single crochet
- st(s): stitch(es)
- bpd: backpost double crochet
- fpdc: frontpost double crochet
first-dc: first double crochet
- At the beginning of the round, single crochet in the first stitch, ch 2. This replaces chain 3 at the beginning of the round to minimize the appearance of a gap when joining the round.
Gauge: 15 stitches x 11 rows = 4 in x 4 in (10 cm x 10 cm)
Measurements: 11.5 in (28.5 cm) circumference without stretching x 6 in (15 cm) tall; this boot cuff is stretchy and will comfortably fit most legs.
- When changing colors, do not cut yarn between rows, but rather carry yarn up at the join. This reduces the tails to be weaved in at the end.
- You will alternate yarn colors each row.
- The tail of beginning foundation single crochet will be used to join the bottom of the first row.
- First-dc can be substituted with ch 3
- A helpful tutorial for the invisible join: http://www.lookatwhatimade.net/crafts/yarn/crochet/crochet-tutorials/crochet-invisible-join-vs-slip-stitch-join/
