Vintage Inspired Boot Cuffs Crochet Pattern

Unless it's freezing outside, I hate having to wear long, thick and super chunky socks with boots. 
So you can only imagine how thrilled I was when I saw crocheted boot cuffs on Etsy! Within minutes I had grabbed a ball of yarn (out of my ever growing stash) and my bag of crochet hooks. It wasn't to long before I was eagerly pulling my new pair of boot cuffs on, and zipping my boots up.
They're exactly what I was looking for, and perfect for those warmer autumn/spring days.


What You'll Need
5.00mm Crochet Hook
50g 8ply {DK} Yarn
Scissors
Tapestry/Wool Needle

Finished Size 
These boot cuffs fit all sizes.
{Easily adjustable, as explained in pattern}



Row 1~ Taking your 5.00mm crochet hook, start of by making a Slip Knot, then crochet 14 Chains. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into the third chain from your hook. Then crochet 1 Single Crochet into every chain across. You should have 13 single crochets now.
Row 2-41~ Chain 1. Crochet 1 Single Crochet into every stitch all across, but only through the front loop. {Note: You can either add or take away a few extra rows depending on your upper calf size.}
When you've completed all the rows, connect the two ends of the band together to create a circle and Slip Stitch them together.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.


~ Scalloped Edging ~

Rotating your work (ribbing), attach your yarn to the last stitch of Row 41. Chain 1. Crochet 1  Single Crochet into the ends of your ribbings rows, working all along the edge. 
Make sure to evenly space your stitches all around. Slip Stitch into the top of chain 1. You should now have 40 single crochets. {Note: If you adjusted this cuff , you'll need to either add or take sets of 4 single crochet stitches depending on if you made your cuff bigger or smaller.}
Round 1~ Chain 1. Single Crochet into the same stitch. Then skip one stitch before crocheting 5 Double Crochets into the following stitch. Skip a stitch, then crochet a Single Crochet. *Skip one stitch before crocheting 5 Double Crochets. Skip a stitch, then crochet a Single Crochet. Repeat from the * mark all across. Slip Stitch into the top of chain 1.
Round 2 - 3~ Chain 2, then crochet 5 Double Crochets into the center stitch of your first scallop. Then Half Double Crochet into the single crochet stitch. *Crochet 5 Double Crochets into the center stitch of the next scallop. Half Double Crochet into the single crochet stitch. Repeat from the * mark all around. Slip Stitch into the top of chain 2.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.
Repeat entire pattern once more to make a pair of scalloped boot cuffs.


I hope you all enjoyed this pattern!

    1. Hello lovely,

      I had a page on my blog that you can find above in the tabs section called "Crochet Basics".
      I've created it to help beginners learn how to crochet using video tutorials, as well as info on all of the basic stitches.
      I recently published another Boot Cuffs crochet pattern on my blog for BASIC boot cuffs. So that might be a good place to start :)
      Hope this helps!

    1. Hi there!
      Chain 13 counts as the 13th chain, while chain 14 counts as the first single crochet. The third chain from your hook is the 12th chain, which is where you start creating single crochets. It counts as the second single crochet.
      Hope this helps!

  3. it's very confusing really, you never count the chain on the hook, so it is in fact the 2nd chain from the hook :)

    1. Hello Samantha!.. I did not count the chain ON the hook, so it's the 3rd chain, not 2nd one :)

  4. What is DK yarn?

    1. DK is the size between knitting worsted and sport yarn. It will say DK on the label and possibly have the number 3 also.
      The confusing thing for beginners in this pattern is the way it's worded! But the cuffs are very pretty. I like dainty things.

  5. I'm confused about how to start the scallop edge..do I just evenly single crochet all the way around?
    I only decreased the number of rows by 1--I did 40 rows instead of 41 so how many single crochets should I have?

  6. Please, all those who create crochet patterns,note whether they are in American or British terminology.

  7. your pattern is confusing, I agree with the comments before me. if you chain 14 and then crochet in the second chain from the hook you'll end up with 13.

  8. I just finished my first one of these, about to start my second, and I found the pattern easy to follow. The scalloped section of mine "flared out," which I didn't like, so I went down a hook size for that part. This kept it a consistent size all the way up, which was what I wanted.

    As for whether to start the first row in the second or third chain from the hook, remember that even though the instructions say to chain 14, you actually have 15 stitches because of the one from the slip knot. I started in the third chain, but I also crocheted into the "slip knot chain" (which I thought you weren't supposed to do, but the patterns I've used apparently expect you to because the count wouldn't work out right otherwise). Doing this gave me the correct number of sc's in the first row.

  9. I did these in a dusty rose for my daughter and didn't have any issues with the pattern. I added some lovely wooden buttons and they looked fantastic.
