No-Sew Crochet Boot Cuffs

No-Sew Crochet Boot Cuff (in progress)

Boot cuffs have become rather popular, and I’ve looked around to find some fun patterns to try. I found a pattern that I really liked the look of (see http://dabblesandbabbles.com/easy-crochet-boot-cuffs/ ), but I didn’t like all the sewing involved. For instance, make two separate pieces (one ribbed side, one textured side) for each boot cuff. Then sew the edges together after sewing the two separate pieces together. Time to simplify! I’m a no-sew crocheter. Any simple project, such as boot cuffs, should be able to be crocheted in one fell swoop without sewing pieces together and dealing with more unnecessary ends to sew in at the end.

Well, I liked this pattern so much, that I changed it to make it “no-sew”! Here is my version:

No-Sew Crochet Boot Cuff

US Terms

Materials:

  • A soft medium weight yarn (I used Caron Simply Soft in Grey Heather)
  • Crochet Hook – US H
  • Yarn or tapestry needle
  • Scissors

Gage: not super important for this project. You can easily adjust the width of the cuff by adding or subtracting rows.

Directions:

Ch = chain, hk = hook, sl st = slip stitch, sc = single crochet, dc = double crochet, tr = treble crochet

Ch 31

Row 1) Dc in 2nd ch from hk, dc in next 13 sts, *tr, sc, repeat from * till end, turn.

Row 2)  Ch 2, tr in last sc from previous row, sc in next st, *tr, sc, repeat from *7 times, sc 13, sc in to of ch 2, turn. Note: During the textured side, make sure to sc into the tr from the previous row, and tr into the sc from the previous row.

Row 3) Ch 2 (counts as 1st dc), sk last sc from previous row, dc 13, *tr, sc, repeat from * till end, turn. Note: During the textured side, make sure to sc into the tr from the previous row, and tr into the sc from the previous row.

Rows 4-31) Repeat rows 2 & 3

Row 32)  Repeat row 2

Row 33) Match row 1 and row 32 wrong sides together, sl st to join both sides all the way across.

Fasten off, weave in ends.

Follow the instructions above, and create another boot cuff for a pair.

Happy crocheting!
