Cross Stitch Boot Pattern

             Cross Stitch Boot Cuff Cross Stitch Boot Cuff

This isn’t the boot cuff that I have had real issues with but, I did want to share this one too.  I hope you enjoy!  Please let me know if there are any issues or problems!  Constructive criticism is always welcomed.

UPDATE: 02/13/13
I am entering this pattern on “Hooking on Hump Day”. Here is the link:

Moogly

Supplies:

  1. I used I Love This Yarn medium (4) worsted weight.  The color I used was ivory.
  2. Crochet Hook Size – H
  3. Tapestry needle for weaving in the ends.

Abbreviations:

ch – chain

st – stitches

sc – single crochet

dc – double crochet

Gauge:  9 stitches and 3 Rows  = approximately 2 inches.

Top Portion of Boot Cuff (Updated 02-16-13) I added row 4.

Row 1:  Ch 11 turn

Row 2:  Sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across, ch 3 turn.  (10 st) (ch3 counts as first dc here and throughout)

Row 3:  skip 2nd sc ,dc in next st, dc in skipped sc, *skip next sc, dc in next sc, dc in skipped sc* across to last sc and dc in last sc.  Ch 1 turn (10 st)

Row 4:  sc in first st and across. ch 3 turn (10 st)

Repeat row 3 and 4 until the desired measurement ending with row 3 and fasten off leaving a long tail.

Join ends together using the long tail and take the side just fastened off using the tapestry needle to sew the front loop only of the stitch and the bottom loop of each sc on the first row.  Fasten off and weave in the ends.

Bottom Portion of Boot Cuff

Row 1:  Join to cuff by ch 1 and sc evenly around, sl st into first sc (not the ch 1).  (Hint)  You will later be decreasing stitches so be sure that your stitches will divide by 4 evenly then add two more sc.  (Example:  Sc 40 stitches plus 2=42 stitches around.)  42 will actually be a good number to use on the average size cuff.

Row 2:  ch 2, dc into next sc and around,  Sl st in top of ch 2 st.

Row 3:  ch 1 and sc in same sp, sc in next dc and around, sl st in first sc.

Row 4:  ch 2, dc into next sc and around,  Sl st in top of ch 2 st.

Row 5:  ch 1 and sc in same sp, sc in next dc and around, sl st in first sc.

Row 6:  ch 2, dc into next sc and around,  Sl st in top of ch 2 st.

Row 7:  ch 1 and sc in same space, sc in next 3 stitches, *skip next sc, sc in next 4 st*, repeat from * to * across, sl st in first sc.

Row 8:  ch 2 and hdc in sc and around, sl stitch in top of ch 2 st.

Row 9:  ch 1 and sc in same sp, sc in next hdc and around, sl stitch in first sc.  Fasten off and weave in ends.

Add buttons if desired.

    • Amanda,

      Calf measurement can be tricky. The size of the person can have a lot to do with the size of the cuff. Unfortunately, it’s not like making hats where there are general sizes. I know when I make “average” cuffs, they are around 15-16″ in length before sewing them together. I hope this helps.

    • I’ve looked back over the pattern and it has been almost a year since I’ve made one of these boot cuffs. To be exact, I would probably need to work up a pair but after doing the math, it would leave you with 2 stitches too many. I’m sorry for the confusion and will make an adjustment once I’ve completed the pattern again if I need too. For now, it would seem that 40 stitches would be the more appropriate number.
