Bottom Portion of Boot Cuff

  1. 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.

I have made boot cuffs by sewing stretch lace but never crochet one but I really like this ripple stitch boot cuff and with the help of this tutorial I believe I cando it. Would this not be pretty in different colors to match what you are wearing and what great gifts they would make.Add some more rows and make it longer if you like.

A boot cuff pattern so good I had to revisit it once again. My idea to switch this up a bit- how about colorblocking them? An oatmeal color with a gray would be a great overall neutral option. A deep red with a black for contrast would be a high fashion option for "fancy" girls!

I love boot cuffs! They make even the most ordinary pair of boots unique. You can personalize these by changing the color used in the pattern. These would look great in any color. The pattern is so easy, and makes the most beautiful creation once its finished. Once it gets closer to winter again, I will have to make a few pairs of these!

I have been crocheting for decades. It never ceases to amaze me how we can manipulate our yarn by putting two different stitches in the same space to create such a textured and unique look. I tried making a sweater using this stitch and it came out so beautiful. I think I could make coffee cozies with this same pattern!

This rIch Ripple Stitch Boot Cuffs are adorable. I am definitely going to make a pair of these. The pattern sounds rather easy and quick to do. I love making these boot cuffs. They have become more popular in the last couple of years. Making them in different colors would be the way to go. Have one for every color in your wardrobe. Definitely a pattern to try.
