Crocheted Boot Cuffs { Updated }

 

The last post I did for the crocheted boot cuffs had a lot of questions and problems with the pattern. So! I have an updated version. : )

Crochet Boot Cuff Supplies

Yarn: Any Medium Worsted Weight Yarn, I have used both Acrylic and Wool. Just choose a yarn that you really like. Don’t limit yourself!
Crochet Hook: Size J/6mm
Yarn Needle
Stitches Used
Chain (CH)
Half Double Crochet (HDC)

 

 

How to Crochet Boot Cuffs

First row: Loosely Chain 25 stitches
Second row: Skip two stitches (this makes your first Half Double Crochet) Then HDC in each stitch
Third row: CH 2 stitches, (this makes your first HDC). HDC into the back part of the loops across the whole row. (Crocheting into the back part of the stitches will give you the ribs)
Rows 4 – 24: Continue the rest of the boot cuff by repeating the instructions for the third row.
Finish: Tie off the end and then use your yarn needle to sew the ends together. Weave in the ends of Yarn.
Notes: You can make the boot cuffs wider of narrower. I did 24 rows which fits around the widest part of my calf that is 13.5”. It is okay if it is tight because they will stretch out as you wear them.

  1. Great pattern.. I have been working away at it then look at the picture and the ribs (HDC into back of stitch) are horizontal rather than vertical.
    What have I done wrong? When I stitch together the ribs will be going the wrong way, still looks good though. Any help would be appreciated.

    1. If you are stitching in the back of every row as you go back and forth you should be getting the ribs. The ribs will be horizontal while you crochet then once you stitch the cuff together they should be vertical. I hope that this answers your question! : )

    2. Sounds to me like you are simply bringing the wrong ends together, or in other words, you are holding it wrong when it's time to close up.
      Holding your pattern so that the ribs are vertical, bring the two ends together and stitch.
      However, if you hold the pattern so that the cuffs are horizontal and bring those ends together, you will have a horizontal ribbing. Both are beautiful. It's just that one is NOT the desired look of the pattern you are seeing in the picture. I guess that's easy to do since while you are crocheting your cuff, it is being held on it's side. At the end, just turn it.

  2. Thanks for your reply. I am getting the ribs and they are horizontal. My problem is stitching the cuff together. If you stitch the two shorter ends together as I did they are still horizontal. Perhaps I am stitching them incorrectly???

  7. Also makes great leg warmers! Just chain 50 to 75 to start depending on how long you want them.
