Boot cuffs. The dickey for your boots.

Last year I designed a simple boot cuff pattern and thought I’d cornered the market on them, since I liked the pattern and didn’t see any reason to change the pattern.

Well, turns out everyone’s making them now and everyone has her own idea of how they should look. It’s quite the revolution.

This pattern was created in sample form but I liked it so much I jotted down the instructions and with a couple variations you can customize them to your size/liking. These ones fit a child, and I used 3.25 mm double pointed needles. If you up the DPNs to 4.5 mm and follow the same instructions this should fit an adult calf.

One great customization people often overlook is adding buttons to the top cuff. It ups the elegance and if you choose the right button makes them look fancy.

The instructions I’ve written skip over the basics. If you get stuck feel free to contact me (here or on Ravelry). As well here are a couple helpful tutorials.
