CROCHET PATTERN - Scalloped Boot Cuffs

Scalloped Boot Cuffs are very popular right now!  I know there are several other patterns similar to this out there already, but I had a hard time finding one that wasn't full of errors, and included sizing for people with fat calves (like me!)  So I wrote up my own version, and I hope you will enjoy it!


Materials:  I/9 (5.5 mm) crochet hook, yarn needle, scissors

Yarn:  Approximately 100 yards of Worsted Weight yarn. Sample shown using Yarn Bee Effervesce.

Sizes:  Small (13-14”) and Large (15-16”).  Written as Small (Large).

Gauge:  7 HDC and 5 Rows = 2”

Difficulty:  Easy

Stitch Guide:  CH - chain, DC - double crochet, HDC - half double crochet, SL ST - slip stitch, ST - stitch

Notes
  1. The CH-1 at the beginning of each round does NOT count as a st.
  2. Cuffs are worked in rows, then joined with a seam, and topped off with one round of shells/scallops.
  3. Measure your leg where the boot cuffs will be worn to determine which size you should make.


Instructions (make 2):

CH 16 (18).
Row 1:  HDC in 2nd CH from hook and in each CH across, CH 1, turn.  [15 (17) HDC]
Row 2—28 (32):  HDC in BL of each ST across, CH 1, turn.  [15 (17) HDC]
Join cuff end-to-end and SL ST through first and last row to form circle.  Do not fasten off.
Turn cuff right-side-out and CH 1.
Last Round:  Work 5 DC into 1st ridge (SEE PIC), SL ST into next ridge, (5 DC into next ridge, SL ST into next ridge) around, join to the CH-1 and fasten off.  Weave in all ends.

Other Suggestions:
  • Other yarns that will work well:  I Love This Yarn, Red Heart Soft, Vanna’s Choice, Cascade 220
  • Use any “border” for the top of the cuffs that you prefer.  Lots of cute afghan edgings would work well here.
  • You can create child size cuffs by working the Small Cuffs with an H hook.
