Feminine, lacy, and elegant, with a touch of country thrown in, these bootcuffs are simple to make, but oh so cute! They work up quickly, which make them a great last minute gift idea, and they don’t use a whole lot of yarn. (We can always use more stash busters, right?)
You can make these in any size you’d like so long as your beginning chain is in multiples of 6 These bootcuffs can also be worked up in finer yarns, with a higher stitch count, and more repeats of round 5.
Are you ready to get started?
Ok, here we go!
4mm (G) hook
100 yards or less of worsted weight yarn such as Red Heart With Love. Red Heart Super Saver will work too.
a yard and a half of sheer 7/8″ ribbon
flower accessory. I used the Jolee’s Boutique Blue Lace Floral Mum It’s a sticker, but can be sewed on
needle for sewing
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
sl st = slip stitch
fphdc = front post half double crochet
bphdc = back post half double crochet
Make two of these, using 4 mm hook, loose tension.
Ch 42 (for larger sizes, increase in multiples of 6, such as 48, 54, or 60). The chain should fit around your calf with a little bit of give. Join with sl st to first ch making a circle. Be careful not to twist!
Round 1: ch 1, sc in each stitch around. Join with sl st to first sc (42)
Round 2: ch 1, fphdc around first stitch, bphdc around next stitch *fphdc around next stitch, bphdc around next stitch* Join with sl st to first fphdc (42)
Round 3: ch 1, fphdc around first fphdc from previous round, hdc in the next *fphdc around fphdc from previous round, hdc in next stitch* Join with sl st to first fphdc (42)
Round 4: ch 1, [sc, hdc, dc] in first stitch, skip 2 stitches, *[sc, hdc, dc] in the next, skip 2 stitches* Join with sl st to first sc
Rounds 5-10: ch 1, [sc, hdc, dc] in first sc, skip 2 stitches, *[sc, hdc, dc] in the next sc, skip 2 stitches* Join with sl st to first sc
Note: If you want a longer cuff, repeat round 5 another time or two
Rounds 11-12: ch 1, sc in each stitch around. Join with sl st to first sc (42)
Round 13: ch 1, dc in each stitch around. Join with sl st to first dc (42)
Round 14: ch 1, sc in each stitch around. Join with sl st to first sc
Round 15: ch 2, skip stitch, sl st in next stitch, *ch 2, skip stitch, sl st in next*
Round 16: sl st into ch 2 space, [ch 1, 3 sc, sl st], sl st into next ch 2 space *[ch 1, 3 sc, sl st], sl st into next ch 2 space* at the end, join with sl st to first sl st.
Cut yarn, and weave in ends
Cut a length of 7/8″ sheer ribbon, long enough to wrap comfortably around your calf, allowing enough extra to tie a bow. Weave through dc from round 13. The ribbon should fold in half to fit through the spaces.
Tie a bow, and cut off your ends at an angle
Finish the ends of the bow with clear nail polish or fray-check
Fluff out the bows to where they look good.
With sewing needle and thread, sew the flower accessory over top of the bow. You will want to put a few stitches into the center of the bow itself to keep it from untying.
If you don’t want a ribbon or flower, you can simply crochet a chain long enough to wrap around your leg, and tie in a bow. Thread it through the dc’s of round 13 and tie. Beads on the ends might be a nice touch. 🙂
