Crocheted Boot Cuffs…

I am going to again share my crochet pattern for boot cuffs, now that I am on a new blog. : )

These are super easy to make!
But just to warn you, this is not an actual crochet pattern, I made it up as I went along. So the instructions aren’t the best.


Revised Instructions HERE : )

I used a size J hook
First row: Loosely Chain 20 stitches 
Second row: Skip two stitches and Half Double Crochet in each single Crochet, Single crochet 2 stitches at the end.
Third row: Half Double Crochet into the back loop, across the next row, at the end single crochet 2 stitches (the rest is the same as the Third row)
Continue till you can wrap it around your calf for sizing, to finish take yarn needle and sew the ends together.
Make sure it is tight on you, the yarn will stretch and  it will slide.
Then wear! :)

My crocheted bow is also a favorite! Here is an attempt at a pattern for it. :)
-I used a size I hook   
-Chain 25
- Single crochet in the second chain from hook, and in each chain across.
-For rows 2-5 Chain 1, single crochet in closest stitch and in each all the way across, turn.
When you get to the last stitch, single crochet, then cut yarn, pull it through and tight, and weave in both ends. 
-Fold over both ends to the middle, then stitch together 
- then wrap yarn around center and tie it off
Hope you guys can figure that out an make a bow! : )

    1. How do you make each turn when you start a new row? Cute pattern.

    2. The starting chain is not chain stitch but a row of single crochet stitches? How do you do that?

      Delete
    3. It is the same as a chain. So in other words it is a chain of 20 stitches. I hope that helps! Like I said I am not good at the instructions! lol

    4. I don't know if it is necessary, but I will do a row of SC in the chains to make it feel more stable to me.
      In any case, these look like ribbed knit, and I can't wait to wear with my new boots!

  5. Just out of curiosity, why did you skip two stitches at the start of the second row? I'm learning to make patterns and I need to know more about why things are constructed different ways.

    1. You skip the two stitches and they become your first "half double crochet". I hope that helps! I am not very good at explaining these things, I just make this stuff up as I go along! : )

  6. I really like this pattern. Do you mean 2 chains at the end of the row and then turn to start another row? Not quite sure what you mean by 2 sc's at the end of the row. Thank you so much.

    1. I just used some left over yarn from other projects, so I don't have the labels for them. But they are both an acrylic yarn that I bought cheap. I have a pair that is also wool, which I really love to. I just use whatever yarn I like best. : )

  8. Hello! This seems like a super great, simple pattern. I'm trying it right now but got kind of confused. I think every time you use "single crochet" you mean "chain". At least that's working for me and makes perfect sense :) Keep up the crafting.

  9. I wish I knew how to crochet. These are so cute!

  10. Here is my interpretation of the instructions for the boot cuffs:
    Chain 21. Starting in second chain from hook, single crochet to end (20 sc)
    Chain 2. Turn and half double crochet in back of each sc to end (20 hdc)
    Repeat rows until wide enough to fit. Sew top row to bottom row.

  11. I am a beginner in crocheting... and it's been years since I've done it, and I'm not familiar with the lingo. Any chance you have a video tutorial? Thanks!

    1. I do not have a video tutorial. Though I might make one before the holidays. I will post a link in this post if I do.

  12. Is there a way to guess on sizing if making as gifts? My coworkers would love these!

  14. These are so fun! I am totally new to crochet, so mine are a little, shall we say "rustic" - the stitches and turning at the end always get me! But, I'm still working on them! AND - I just ordered the boots on Amazon for $35 - thanks for the link! Wasn't sure it would work since it was a couple of years old, but it did! <3
