Boot Cuffs Free Knitting Pattern

Free boot cuff pattern


I have been so excited to share this free boot cuff pattern! Boot cuffs are so much fun to make because they are so quick to make. I’ll be posting a few more boot cuff patterns coming up. These are made with an acrylic yarn so they can take a lot of abuse and washings, being that they are worn on the legs.

  1. i am a fairly new, well really old, knitter. It seems to me that there is something missing in the pattern, unless they are knit from the bottom up? Sorry I’m so confused!

  2. Can’t wait to make these cute boot cuffs for my granddaughter! But in Row 2, why is the asterisk there? And in that row, should the 2nd comma be removed — you purl 1, then knit 14 stitches, right?

      1. Thanks Jan for catching that! It is supposed to be 7 repeats of the k1, p1 for a total of 14 stitches before the k2. I updated the instructions so hopefully they are more clear 🙂

  3. Good morning. Could you tell me the circumference of this boot cuff? If I were to increase to a larger size, how many stitches would I have to add to keep the pattern? Thank you

  4. hi, just curious, row 5 says to repeat the line to the end, is that the whole line to the end? because counting it, it seems to come to 38 stitches instead of 31. is that possible? Sorry Im new to knitting 🙂

  5. My niece is a boot freak so I can’t wait to make her a few pairs of these in different colors. Thanks for sharing this pattern with all of us!!!
