Chic Aran Boot Cuffs - Free Crochet Pattern

The yarn was provided by Red Heart Yarns.

  






These boot cuffs  are worked sideways in one piece, so you don't need to make the ribbing separately! They are customizable to any cuff size and to any boot height also!

You can wear these boot cuffs the way you like; you can fold them over the boots as seen in the picture below- to get this look, you will  put them on inside out  and fold them over your boots. 

Don't lose this pattern! 


Chic Aran Boot Cuffs - Free Crochet Pattern on myhobbyiscrochet.com








SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate


GAUGE: 8 groups of crossed dc = 16 sts = 4 in (10 cm)


                approx. 3 panels (12 rows in aran pattern) = 4 in (10 cm)

Note: You will find the term aran panel: this refers to a pattern repeat of 4 rows.

FINISHED SIZE:
Without stretching, the boot cuffs measure 24 cm around at widest point, 20 cm around at ribbing
and inches high= 14 cm

HOW TO CUSTOMIZE TO ANY CUFF SIZE AND BOOT HEIGHT:
The pattern is written for ankle boots (Chelsea boots) toppers, but you can easily customize them for any boot height and also for any cuff size!

Customize the width of the boot cuffs to any size, by working less/more rows in the aran pattern stitch.)

For a higher cuff, start with more chains multiple of 2 + 1 st to turn. Use exactly the same number of yo-slsts for top and bottom ribbing and make more pairs of crossed sts in between the ribbing.

For example here, I have used 26 sts + 1 st to turn = 27 chains to start.

26 sts in the row = 5 sts ribbing top + 16 sts for crossed sts + 5 sts ribbing bottom


SUPPLIES:

- 1 skein of  Chic Sheep by Marly Bird from Red Heart yarn (Sterling colorway shown)

Finished project yardage (both cuffs) 62g.

- tapestry needle to sew in the ends

- stitch markers/ yarn ends

ABBREVIATIONS:

(US Terminology used)

- ch: chain

- back bump of chains:  See my picture tutorial!

st: stitch

- csdc: chainless starting double crochet.

Note: To avoid gaps on the edge, I have used the csdc instead of ch3 at the beginning of rows. If you are not familiar with the csdc, you can watch this video tutorial by Moogly to learn how to.

(Or you can use the traditional ch3 if you prefer that way.)

RS = right side

WS= wrong side

Special Stitches:


1) Yo-slst = yarn over slip stitch: Yarn over (yo) and insert the hook into the indicated st. Yarn over and draw the yarn through the chain. Having the 3 loops on hook, pull/slip the first loop on hook through the next 2 loops on hook to complete a Yarn Over Slip Stitch (yo-slst).

Please see my PICTURE TUTORIAL HERE to learn how to crochet the yarn over slip stitch and the yarn over slip stitch back loops only! )

2) Yo-slst-blo: yarn over slip stitch back loops only: work the same as above, but inserting the hook in the back loops of sts.


3) Variations of the Crossed Double Crochet and Crossed Half Double Crochet

By working these variations of the cross stitch, you will get stitches, which although crossed, are not entangled with each other.

3.1) Back Crossed Double Crochet (bcr dc): sk 1 st, work 1 dc into the next st, 1 dc back into skipped st going behind the last dc just made, so as not to catch it.

Watch this video tutorial from Crochet Cabana to learn how to Back Crochet Double Crochet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnEqVMk6oTI

3.2) Front Crossed Double Crochet variation (fcr dc): sk 1 st, work 1 dc into the next st, 1 dc back into skipped st going in front of the last dc just made, but inserting the hook into the skipped stitch from back of the work to the front. This is an important step to obtain the arrow look of this aran pattern.

You can watch this Video of the Crochet Crowd on YouTube to see how to insert the hook for this kind of Front Crossed Double Crochet.

3.3) Back Crossed Half Double Crochet (bcr hdc): sk 1 st, work 1 hdc into the next st, 1 hdc back into skipped st going behind the last hdc just made, so as not to catch it.

3.4) Front Crossed Half Double Crochet (fcr hdc): sk 1 st, work 1 hdc into the next st, 1 hdc back into skipped st going in front of the last hdc just made, but inserting the hook into the skipped stitch from back of the work to the front.

NOTE: When written 1bcr dc or any of the crossed sts, it is meant 1 group of 2 sts; 1bcr dc = 2 dc sts crossed.
