Crochet Tutorial: Simple Chunky Boot Cuffs

Standard

Boot cuffs are a great accessory to dress up not only a pair of boots but with jeans or a skirt, it is a great accent! This tutorial covers how to make a pair of simple chunky boot cuffs that are perfect for anyone! I used less than one skein of Lion Brand yarn (Super Bulky) with a N-9.00mm crochet hook. Feel free to use any chunky brand of yarn that is equivalent and it will work the same!

Simple Chunky Boot Cuffs

I share how to make these using measurements so if you want to make them smaller for a child or a teen or bigger for a larger calf you can do so by adding or reducing Foundation Double Crochets on your first round.

When people see these, they express how difficult they look to make, but honestly, these are so simple. It takes less than a couple hours to finish!

These make great gifts for the holidays, birthdays, or any special occasion! They are fun to make and fun to wear!

Follow along with this video to make your very own boot cuffs!

 

This pattern was inspired by a free pattern I found online by Fiber Flux. I modified the pattern a little bit to make it more my own, but it is very close to this pattern.
