Easy Reversible Crochet Boot Cuffs – One of my very favourite things about this time of year is being able to break out my boots. Over the last season or two boot cuffs or boot toppers have really become popular and rightfully so, they really help showcase your beautiful boots. I’ve been wanting to purchase some boot cuffs for a while now but haven’t found anything fabulous so I decided just to make my own instead. I created this design without any pattern (I’m thrilled they actually turned out). There may be better ways to make the boot cuff but this is what I came up with and actually I love them. *A special thanks to my husband for being so patient while I directed the photo shoot and he took the shots. You’re a good man!
Reversible Boot Cuff Pattern
- A soft medium weight yarn. I used Red Heart Soft in Light Grey Heather.
- Crochet Hook – US J10/6 mm.
- Yarn or tapestry needle
Basic Boot Cuff Directions:
Ch = chain, sl st = slip stitch, sc = single crochet, dc = double crochet, tr = treble crochet (U.S.)
- Part 1: Ribbed side of the boot cuff. Ch 13 and then ch 2 in the last stitch from the hook. Dc in every other stitch in the row until you’re at the end of the row. Turn and ch 2 and then sc in each stitch until you’re at the end of the row. Turn and carry on alternating a row of dc followed by a row of sc. Keep going until you’ve reached your desired width. Keep wrapping the piece around your leg in the knee/calf area to see what is the best size. The cuff should be snug enough so that it doesn’t fall down your leg but not too tight that it’s difficult to get over your pants. For reference mine was 13 inches wide (I have pretty thick calves). If these are for someone else, you’ll have to measure their legs before you start making the cuffs.
- Part 2: Textured side of the boot cuff. Ch 16 and then ch 2 in the last stitch from the hook. Tr in the next stitch, sc in the next stitch and alternate these 2 stitches for the rest of the row. Turn and ch 2 and then going into the last sc from the previous row, tr and then sc in the next stitch and keep alternating between these 2 stitches for the rest of the row. Hint: your tr should always be going into a sc stitch from the previous row and your sc should always be going into a tr from the previous row. Keep up this pattern until this piece is as long as the ribbed part of the cuff. Fasten off and weave in ends.
- Now using your yarn or tapestry needle, cut a long piece of yarn and carefully sew together the two parts of the cuff along the longest sides (see photo below). When the long side is complete, sew together the two short sides. Weave in any loose ends.
- Follow the instructions above and create another boot cuff for the other leg.
