I Heart Boot Cuffs Free Crochet Pattern

I have a free crochet pattern for you!  I'm calling it...

I Heart Boot Cuffs

It all started with something I had wanted FOREVER! Now, my hubby reminds me that I say that about everything I want. But, hey, I ALWAYS speak in superlatives! ;)

This is what started it all...

I got these wonderful red boots from my daughter for Christmas. She pretty much "gets" me.

And who doesn't need red boots, right?

I had ogled her black ones for over a year...

Now I think I need them in gray, too! 

But let's not get distracted. I really do love boot cuffs! Especially to add that little pop of color and coziness to a winter outfit.

And I think the little hearts add a sweet touch.

Plus, the hearts can be worn in the back or on the sides.

I made these in I Love This Cotton by Hobby Lobby in Monkey Red. It's pretty stretchy, but I love the twist in the yarn. I think these would be pretty terrific in almost any worsted weight yarn, though. And any color of heart, too! In fact, I plan on making several more pair! 

Here's the pattern for you...

• Yarn—
# of Skeins
Monkey Red (MC)
Ivory (CC)
very small bit
I Love This Cotton
100% cotton
or any worsted weight yarn of your choice
• Hook—G (4.0mm)
• Tapestry or yarn needle

• Sample cuffs = 13in (33cm) in diameter X 5.5in (14cm) high
• Cuff can be adjusted to fit any size leg by measuring around the leg—approximately 5.5 inches below the knee and making your starting chain when stretched to that measurement. Remember, cotton is stretchy so pull tighter than you would if using acrylic.

  1. Great pattern! Thank you for sharing!

    1. You are so very welcome! I hope you enjoy it!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this. I'm in the process of making them right now! So far, so good :)

  3. I am working on them right now in cotton and want to try them in acrylic too....like how they are working up . Can a flat stitch like sc be used as a part that goes in the boot? was wondering if that would make it not so think for tight boots? Just curious if it is possible? I love these and the heart is adorable...thank you

    1. Penny, a sc and dc are essentially the same thickness. I suggest using a thinner weight yarn, like sock or DK for less bulk and then adding a few rows to make them fit. Let me know how this works for you.

  4. OMG totally awesome boot cuffs. Thanks so much for sharing. Linking up with Hookin on Hump Day. Happy New Year!

  5. Susan,
    I love the Red Boot Cuff Pattern with a cream colored heart. I am not able to locate the Free Pattern. Can you help me ? I would like to make a few before Valentine's Day so this message is time sensitive .
