Last year I had a request to make some holiday boot cuffs. I came up with a pattern and tutorial but had yet to put the pattern in writing. I love these cuffs because they’re adorable and they work up quickly, using little yarn.
Abbreviations: ch – chain, st – stitch, sts – stitches, sc – single crochet, hdc
– half double crochet, sl st – slip stitch, PM – Place Marker

- Yarn (You won’t need much but you will need red, black, white and a golden yellow. I used Loops & Threads Impeccable Yarn but any worsted weight yarn will do. A furry white yarn would be great for the top!)
- Crochet Hook in a size G or 4.25 mm
- Stitch Marker
- Yarn Needle
Begin by chaining 11.
Row 1: Sc into the 2nd ch. from your hook. Sc into each ch across. Ch 1, turn your work (10 sts)
Rows 2-32: Sc into each back loop only. Ch 1, turn your work. (You can add or remove rows to fit around your calf. Make sure it will stretch and fit over jeans).
Join your cuff to your beginning row by doing a sl st through each back loop only. So you will insert your hook in the first back loop of your last row as well as into the first back loop of your initial chain row and sl st them together. Continue this all the way across.
Working up the Cuff
Ch 1 and pick up 44 sc sts (46 or 48 sts if you need a larger size) evenly spaced around the top of the cuff. Do NOT sl st to the first st of the row.
Row 1: Sc into the first st. PM. Hdc into each st around.
Row 2: Keep working in the round with hdc sts in each st around.
Row 3: Hdc in each st until the 2nd to last st. Sc in the final st of the round. Sl st to the first st of the next round pulling up a loop with black yarn instead of the red to create a smooth color transition.
Row 4: Ch 1, work a hdc into the same sl st. Tie down your ends and continue to crochet over them or save them for weaving in at the end. Hdc in each st around.
Row 5: Sc into the first st. Hdc in each st around
Row 6: Hdc in each st around until the 2nd to last st. Sc in the last st. Sl st to the first st of the next round pulling up a loop of red yarn to transition back to the red.
Row 7: Ch 1, hdc into sl st. Hdc in each st around.
Row 8: Sc in first hdc. Hdc in each st around.
Row 9: Hdc in each st around until the 2nd to last st. Sc in the last st. Sl st to the first st of the round (without doing a color change to white yet). Cut off your tail, keeping it out for now so you can tie your white tail to it..
Row 10: Pull up a loop of white yarn in the first st without chaining. Yarn over and complete a hdc as if you had already done a ch st. (This provides the smoothest transition). Tie off your white tail to your red tail. Hdc in each st around. Sl st to the first st of the round. Cut off your tail and weave in your ends.
Gold Belt Buckle
Begin by loosely making 20 chains with your yellow yarn. Making sure you don’t twist your chain, sl st to the back bump of the first ch st. Ch 1.
Row 1: Work all sts in the back bump only. 3 sc in first st., 4 sc. *3 sc in next st., 4 sc. Repeat from * til end of round. Sl st to first sc of round. Cut off your tail leaving enough to st your buckle onto the boot cuff.
Position your yellow buckle where you want it on the cuff. I positioned mine so that it covered the joins between my black and red rows. Use your needle to stitch it on taking care to keep it looking neat (pinning it down is optional).
And that completes your Holiday Boot Cuffs! If you have questions on any part of the process and you’d like to view my complete video tutorial, you can do so here:
