Easy Boot Cuffs Crochet Pattern

These boot cuffs are soft and comfortable. They are crocheted with Medium / Aran Weight Yarn [4] and a 5.5 mm (I) crochet hook. We crochet them from the top down in rounds, after the first row. They can be made quickly and are easily customized to different sizes.

Disclaimer: The yarn used to create this project was given to me by King Cole.


All you need is a 5.5 mm (I) crochet hook and Medium Weight Yarn [4]. I used King Cole Drifter Aran yarn for my project and they boot cuffs turned out squishy soft. I totally love how this yarn works up and retains its stitch definition.

Here’s how you can make these boot cuffs fit any size calf.

  • Take the measurement of the calf you want to make a set of boot cuffs to fit and subtract 1 inch.
  • Then take that number and multiply it by 3. This will give you the starting number of chains you need.
  • To make the stitch pattern work out, you need to start with an even number of stitches.
  • So if your number was 20 inches and we subtract 1 we have 19 inches. 19 multiplied by 3 is 57. It needs to be an even number of stitches so make your starting stitches 58.

Helpful Tutorials

Notes:

  • This project begins by working 1 row of foundation half double crochet stitches. Once you have finished row 2 we crochet the remainder of the project in rounds.
  • If you do not want to use fhdc, use a 6 mm (J) hook and chain the number of stitches indicated in Row 1, plus 2 chs. Switch to your 5.5 mm (I) hook, sk the first 2 chs and work 1 hdc in each rem chain across. Do not count the initial ch-2 as a stitch and remember not to work into it. Then proceed to Row 2 of the pattern and follow the remainder of the pattern as written. Do not count the sl st as a stitch and do not work into it.
  • IMPORTANT: Do not count the ch 1 and ch 2 as stitches and do not work into them. *This means, when you ch 2 at the beginning of the round, you will need to work a dc into the very first st of the round because you are not counting the ch 2 as a stitch.**
  • Make your slip stitches tightly.

Finishing Instructions

  • Weave in any remaining ends.
  • Block to shape if desired.

Different Gauge and/or Different Yarn and Hook Options

If your gauge is different, or if you are using a different weight of yarn, take your gauge per inch and multiply it by the circumference of the calf (minus 1) to determine your starting number of fhdc. Then make sure that the starting number of fhdc is an even number.

So say you have 5 dc stitches per inch. The calf measurement is 12 inches.

  • 12 inches minus 1 inch = 11 inches
  • 11 inches x 5 dc / inch = 55 fhdc 

The pattern requires an even number of stitches to work out properly, so you would begin with 56 fhdc stitches. 

If you are starting with a foundation chain instead, in this scenario you would begin with 58 chs. Then skip the first 2 chs and work 1 hdc in each rem chain across. At the end of the row you would have 56 hdc (since we do not count the beg ch 2 as a stitch for this pattern). Proceed to Row 2 to complete the pattern.

  1. I haven’t even taken out my yarn and hook to start this pattern, but I already LOVE this site!
    Your instructions on sizing and gauge are so clear, I’m copying them into my Notes for future reference! And clear pictures showing the details of a dc stitch – front and back – are a great help, even to an experienced crocheter (my goal for the year!) thanks!
