With October bringing its gust of chilly weather, now is the time to start planning the perfect fall and winter wardrobes. To set the scene, picture yourself headed to work, a cup of coffee or hot cocoa—probably with a pinch of pumpkin spice—warming your hand, the collar of your overcoat turned up against the wind, and the perfect set of calf-high boots keeping your feet toasty. Something is missing, and that something is a pair of Star Stitch Boot Cuffs from Janaya Chouinard at Charmed by Ewe. Trendy boot cuffs are incredibly popular right now, so they are not only fun and easy to make for yourself, but they are also the perfect gift idea for a winter birthday or Christmas.
Just like with our September Crochet Along, we are going to get you started with all the materials and where to find the perfect yarn. In the next two blog posts, you’ll learn how to create the button cuff and star stitch, measure for the right size, and complete your boot cuffs.
With a ribbed texture on the bottom and a snow-like star stitch on the top, these boot cuffs are fashionable and unique. The beautiful detail makes this pattern seem too good to be true—but don’t worry, it’s all yours.
- Worsted weight yarn such as Red Heart With Love
- 5.0 mm crochet hook or size needed to obtain the gauge
- Yarn needle for weaving in ends
- 3/4″ buttons (2)
Stay tuned to learn how to crochet the star stitch and get started on these boot cuffs.
