Boot Cuffs Crochet Pattern:
Row 1: sc in the 2nd st from hook, sc across, turn
Row 2: ch1, sc in first st, blsc across until last st, sc in last st, turn
Row 3-38: repeat row 2, join both ends and sl st them together, turn to the side
Round 1: ch1, sc in each sc along the top, sl st to start
Round 2: ch1, (sc, ch1, sk 1 st) around, sl st to start picking up 2nd color (blue)
Round 3: ch1, *dc in the sc from round 2 (the one below the ch1 sp), sc in the next sp, rep from * around, sl st to start picking up the 1st color (black)
Round 4: ch1, *sc in next st (top of dc), dc in the same st as the sc from prev round (so 1 round below), rep from * around, sl st to start picking up 2nd color (blue)
So, you are alternating between sc and dc, but instead of crocheting a dc in the top of the prev. sc, you are going 1 round below and crocheting into the same sp as the prev sc.
Round 5-12: rep round 4, sl st to start but keeping the black color yarn
Round 13: ch2, dc around, sl st to start, fasten off and weave in all ends
Now you just have to make a second boot cuff to complete your set! You can also make them longer by adding more rounds before your final round or larger by adding more rows of ribbing. The short boot cuffs also make great handmade gifts for the holidays that can be completed in less than a day.
