These crochet boot cuff toppers are just what you need to keep the cold out of your winter boots. They can be worn with ankle boots or any type of boots. They are the perfect accessory to go with this Striped Slouchy Beanie Crochet Pattern. The set makes for a great gift idea for just about anyone on your list.
The main body of these boot toppers are worked with the crunch stitch. It’s a beautiful stitch pattern that is not only cozy, but gives you a nice texture as well. The stitch looks good in a striped design, but can also be worked up in a solid color as well.
Another beauty is that you can crochet these cuffs in any size that you need from child to adult sizes. Here is a Crochet Boot Cuff Size Chart to use as a reference if you’re making changes to the size.
As for the yarn, I used Caron Simply Soft, which is a medium worsted weight yarn that works well with an I crochet hook. It is super soft, and very nice to work with. Any similar yarn will work too.
How It’s Made – The Crunch Stitch with Stripes
The pattern is started at the ribbing rows. The ribbing is made simply by crocheting into the back loops.
You can adjust the width of the ribbing simply by increasing or decreasing your starting chains.
Continue to work the ribbing rows until you have reached a desired circumference. Just make sure to end with a multiple of two to accommodate the stitch pattern used for the body.
Then bring the two ends together. Chain 1 and join by slip stitching across.
Flip your work so the seam falls on the inside. Then begin working in the round.
Each row end counts as one stitch. Work a half double crochet into the first end. Then slip stitch into the next row end. Repeat around, and join with a slip stitch. Turn.
After two rounds, change to the next color. For this pattern, it looks best to work the first round of the new color from the right side. So the color changes are done from the Wrong Side.
So to do the color change, bring the old color to the front or the “Wrong Side” of the fabric as shown.
Then bring in the next color from the Wrong Side as well, as shown.
Insert your hook in the first stitch of the round. Wrap the new color over and pull through to complete the join and color change.
I always get a big loop on the old color. Pull the old yarn to pull it tight.
Chain 1 and turn your work. Half double crochet into the first slip stitch.
Then slip stitch into the next half double crochet. Repeat around.
