Pattern for reversible crochet boot cuffs

Easy Reversible Crochet Boot Cuffs – One of my very favorite 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
  • Scissors

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 15.

Row 1: 1dc in the third chain from the hook and then one dc in every stitch until you’re at the end of the row. Turn.

Row 2: Ch 2. 1sc in each stitch until you’re at the end of the row. Turn.

Row 3: Ch 3. 1dc in each stitch across row. Turn.

Repeat rows 2 – 3 until you reached your desired length. Keep wrapping the piece around your leg in the knee/calf area to fit to the correct 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. If these are for someone else, you’ll want to measure their legs before you start making the cuffs.

Part 2: Textured side of the boot cuff.

Ch 18.

Row 1: 1sc in the second chain from the hook. *Tr in the next chain, sc in the next chain*, rep * until end of row. Turn.

Row 2: Ch 3, *tr into the sc from the previous row, next sc into the tr from the previous row*, rep * until end of row. Turn. (tip: 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).

Repeat Row 2

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.

      I made them 13″ long and then sewed it together but you should be making it to the size of your calf/knee area (or the correct size of the person you’re making it for).

    How long did these take you to make? I’ve never done crochet before, but I’m wanting to learn.

      Hi Mary,

      Hard to say as I just exactly as I kind of pick away at them when ever I get a spare moment. I’m sure you could finishing them in a weekend though.

      Hi Susan. So after you’ve created your 13 chains, go back into the 12th chain and then do 2 chain stitches into that stitch and then continue in that same direction for the rest of the row. I hope that helps.

        Love pattern.

        So I began making these boot cuffs and still don’t understand What it means by chaining into a chain and I cannot find anything on YouTube to help out. Then I hit the download pattern and it looks like the directions are different. Sorry I am stilll a new crocheter. That one says to chain 18 and then ch2 at begin Of each row and not 3.

    Hi I love the pattern used for these boot cuffs. I was wondering though if LionBrand Heartland Yarn would work for these?

    • Jamey

      Hi Cyndi, yes I think the Heartland yarn would be perfect for this. They are almost identical in weight. Heartland is one of my favourite yarns. Enjoy!

    Love this pattern! And it is so versatile! I made some with two different colors (top and bottom) so they are even MORE reversible! Lots of options for color combinations and stitch variations!

    I love the pattern, I noticed some differences when I downloaded the patter from The one written here. I also don’t understand how you chain into the last chain.
