One thing I’ve learned about my fans is that you love patterns that come in sets. I released the Comfy Squares Textured Cowl last month and several of you asked for the boot cuff pattern that I’d mentioned in the blog post that I was planning to make. I finally got around to writing it down!

COMFY SQUARES TEXTURED BOOT CUFFS
Small (12″ around and 5″ tall); instructions for adjusting for different sizes are included.
Gauge: With G hook, 10SC = 2” in length
Hook: G (4.25mm)
Yarn: 150-160 yards of #3 light weight yarn (such as Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn Sport)
You’ll also need: Yarn needle
SL ST (slip stitch)
SC (single crochet)
HDC (half double crochet)
SC+HDC (this just means to put a single crochet and a half double crochet in the same stitch)
BLO (back loop only)
(1) This pattern is written in American Standard terms.
(2) It is crocheted as a flat piece, then seamed at the end.
(3) CH1 at the beginning of rounds does not count as a stitch.
(4) The phrase “(SK next ST, SC+HDC in next ST) 7 times” means 7 times total.
(5) Only crochet in BLO (back loops only) when specifically instructed.
Instructions for different sizes:
Making these larger (or smaller) is simple — instead of repeating rows 2-3 until piece measures 12″ in length as instructed, simply repeat until the cuffs are the length you need. You can also add to the height of the cuffs by increasing your starting chain (keep it an odd number), and including those added stitches in the (SK next ST, SC+HDC in next ST) section.
PATTERN (MAKE 2)
Row 1: SC in 2nd CH from hook. SC in each of the next 5 STS. (SK next ST, SC+HDC in next ST) 7 times. SC in each of the last 4 STS. (24)
Row 2: CH1, turn. SC in first ST. SC in BLO of each of the next 3 STS. (SK next ST, SC+HDC in next ST) 7 times. SC in BLO of each of the next 5 STS. SC in last ST. (24)
Row 3: CH1, turn. SC in first ST. SC in BLO of each of the next 5 STS. (SK next ST, SC+HDC in next ST) 7 times. SC in BLO of each of the next 3 STS. SC in last ST. (24)
Rows 4-53 (or until piece measures 12″ in length): Repeat rows 2-3. (24)
Fasten off, leaving a 12″ tail. Use your yarn needle and finishing tail to seam both ends of the cuff together. Fasten off and weave in all ends.
I was just wondering if it were possible to make this into a leg warmer pattern?
I suppose you would just make them taller 🙂
if I wanted t o make this for someone that has an 18 inch calf what should i do?
Hi! You’ll find instructions for making different sizes up in the pattern notes, just before the pattern begins.
I love this pattern! It’s very easy to follow for a beginner and works up quickly!
Hi! I absolutely love your designs and patterns! I’m very new to crocheting and I’m trying to figure out my mistake with this pattern. When I am to do 3 SC in BLO, I really have 4, and then the same thing….instead of 5 I have 6. But, when I count, I have 24 stitches. I just can’t figure out why I’m off. Is there any way you can figure out where I should look for the mistake? Thanks!
It looks like you’re missing the instructions for the very first and very last stitches. Here’s Row 2, with those instructions surrounded by ***:
Row 2: CH1, turn. ***SC in first stitch.*** SC in BLO of each of the next 3 STS. (SK next ST, SC+HDC in next ST) 7 times. SC in BLO of each of the next 5 STS. ***SC in last stitch.*** (24)
The reason the first and last stitches are instructed separately is because we’re working them in both loops (instead of BLO), which helps give us a cleaner edge.
