Boot cuffs have become increasingly popular over the past couple of years, and the trend doesn’t seem to be slowing down a bit. It’s probably because they are such a simply cute way to bring an outfit together. And for us crocheters, they’re quick and easy to make.

The Maribel Boot Cuffs pair perfectly with the Maribel Cowl, and can even be made from the yarn you’ll have left over from making the cowl. This set has quickly become a favorite of mine, and I hope you’ll love it, too!

The pattern below is for size small boot cuffs. It is worked in a way that allows you to easily increase their size, by merely adding more rows until they are the length you prefer.

Maribel Boot Cuffs

Hook: I (5.50 mm)
Yarn: Worsted (For 2 cuffs, size small, I used about 150 yards of Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in "linen")
Difficulty: Easy
Gauge: A row of 8 HDC = about 2"
Finished Size: Approximately 13" around before sewing, and 6" tall
Other Materials Needed: 10 small buttons, needle and thread for embellishing, yarn needle

Notes:
(1) This pattern is written in American Standard Terms.
(2) This pattern uses a stitch I call RibHDC, in which you complete your half double crochet stitch in the single loop just below the loops you usually use. This is what gives the boot cuffs a faux-knit, ribbed look. For a visual explanation, you can view this photo tutorial.
(3) HELPFUL HINT: When RibHDC-ing, sometimes it's easy to miss the last stitch of the row because it ends up at a bit of an angle. So, if your boot cuff is getting skinnier and skinnier, you're probably neglecting it. Counting your stitches will solve this problem. :)
(4) Starting Ch does not count as an HDC.

The Pattern (make 2)

To begin: Ch 23.

Row 1: HDC in 2nd Ch from hook, and in each St across. (22 HDC not counting the Ch)

Row 2: Ch1; turn. RibHDC across. (22 RibHDC)

Rows 3-31 (for size small; or, add rows until boot cuff is the length you want it to be... just make sure you end with both tails on the same side of the cowl, as in Step 1's photo below): Ch1; turn. RibHDC across. (22 RibHDC)

Fasten off, leaving a long finishing tail. To sew together:

Lay cuff flat so that both tails are on the right side (photo 1). Fold cuff so that the end with the long finishing tail overlaps the other end by about 1/2" (photo 2). This overlap will help give the impression that the buttons we add are actually fastening the cuff together (but without the hassle of actually having to button up the cuff). Use the finishing tail to sew the ends together. I put my seam at the center of the 2 ending rows (which is actually photo 4), and down through the exposed loops of the row below (photo 3), working up and down this line. Fasten off and weave in your ends.

Sew 5 buttons onto each cuff, evenly spaced down the seam that you just sewed.

Now, go made a matching Maribel Cowl for a complete winter ensemble!

  • Kristen September 23, 2015, 12:41 am

    These are just so much cuter than other patterns you find. I love your style & hope to be making lots of your patterns! These will definitely be the boot cuffs I make! Thanks for all your lovely work!

  • Janet October 9, 2015, 12:31 pm

    I’ve been searching for a nice looking pattern for boot cuffs. These look simple and classy – love them. Definitely adding to my “to crochet” list. Thank you! 🙂

  • Donna November 19, 2015, 5:45 pm

    My granddaughter loves these boot cuffs and I want to make them for her to match a scarf using the leftover yarn from the scarf. Do you know how much yarn was used?

    • Rebecca November 19, 2015, 8:01 pm

      Yes, I used 150 yards (total) for two cuffs, size small.

  • Hanna December 15, 2015, 11:38 pm

    Just made a set of these and they are great! The pattern was written in a way that is easy to understand, and I greatly appreciate a well written pattern;) Also, thank you for the tip about the last stitch in the row. Without it I would have for sure missed it!

  • MsMommy December 22, 2015, 9:20 am

    I love your blog and detailed instructions. You have beautiful patterns and excellent tutorials. I appreciate the pictures and instructions to fix or avoid mistakes. I enjoy your blog.

  • Stephanie Czosnek January 11, 2016, 9:16 am

    These are perfectly simple! I need to make some – my sister has a request in!

  • Mick San January 11, 2016, 9:34 am

    These are cute, simple and will be fast to make. My two nieces saw the pattern and they each want boat cuffs in different colors. What’s an Auntie to do….but start crocheting! Lol

  • Mick San January 11, 2016, 9:36 am

    Darn auto correct! Of course I meant to write “boot cuffs” NOT “boat cuffs”. Lol

  • Amber Collins January 11, 2016, 11:44 am

    I can’t wait to make these. Your patterns are so easy to follow for beginners like me. I’ve only been learning for a month now and I’ve only done a simple scarf.

  • Carolyn Kendrick January 11, 2016, 1:58 pm

    I’ve made these boot cuffs and they’re great.

  • Mary January 14, 2016, 11:09 am

    Love these boots cuffs!

  • Debra Miller January 15, 2016, 1:28 pm

  • Miss Abigail January 16, 2016, 12:58 pm

    These are so stylish! Thanks for sharing.

  • MichelleS January 18, 2016, 10:30 am

    Just love these, thanks for the free pattern. Make it so simple to follow along.

  • Michelle Harrison January 18, 2016, 8:41 pm

    These are darling, and look like I can make them(maybe not as easily as you, but you make it look possible!)

  • Kerry Taylor March 11, 2016, 10:21 pm

    Thanks so much for sharing your pattern! I’m a novice crochet-er (is that a word?) at best but find your directions clear and wonderfully easy to follow. I have a pair in the works for my little gdaughter. She will love them. Thanks again, so much for so generously sharing!!

  • Ilene October 16, 2017, 10:27 am
