Free Boot Cuffs Crochet Pattern.
These crocheted boot cuffs are available in three sizes from small to large. However, the stitch pattern is so simple that you can basically crochet them to any size you want.
They are a match for the Alternating Hat and Cowl. The only difference is that these are crocheted in a worsted weight, whereas the hat and cowl are crocheted in a chunky yarn. But the good news is that the hat and cowl are just as easy to adjust in size, making it easy to crochet them in a worsted weight yarn as well. Here is a crochet boot cuffs size chart.
Other patterns in the alternating series can be found here. Or, you might be interested in more crochet boot cuffs patterns, such as the Thermal Boot Cuffs, the Any Size, the Simple or the Bonanza boot cuffs.
