Ribbed Boot Cuffs:

–       Size G-6 Crochet hook (4.0 mm)

Pattern:

Row 1: Double crochet fourth chain from hook, and in each stitch across. (20 stitches)

Row 2 – end: Chain 3 (counts as first dc) and turn. Double crochet in BACK LOOPS ONLY, in each stitch across. (20 stitches).

Once the cuff is the right length to fit around your leg, slip stitch to create seam with the first row in order to form a tube. You can add an edging if desired.

As you work the cuff, wrap around leg to measure. Can be made to any size you choose. You can choose to sew the finished cuff to the top of a sock or cut off an old sleeve from a shirt, or leave as is.

Happy crocheting!
