Are you a Boot cuff kind of lady? My love for warmth in fall makes designing this crochet boot cuff pattern timely. Since it gets supper cold over her around Christmas, this boot cuff pattern would come in handy as gifts to yourself or loved ones.
Talking of gifts to self, have you ever made a crochet item as a gift for yourself? I should make all effort to finish my own large projects especially for me.
Fitting for this crochet boot cuff pattern
The pattern is written in 3 different sizes, but since we all have different measurements, you can totally make a perfect fit or customized Boot cuff. The foundation chains should be a good fit around your calf /leg or boot.
The prototype is made using a double knit yarn (#3). The pattern was also tested using the same weight of yarn. You are welcome to use any type of DK yarn.
The texture in this beanie is so beautiful as such, I have designed so many patterns using this stitch.
You should check out the other patterns on my blog using the same stitch.
Considering the number of patterns I’ve designed using the dc cluster, I made a stitch tutorial for the stitch in order to simplify the stitch. Check out the tutorial here – How to crochet a dc cluster stitch.
