I Heart Boot Cuffs, White hearts on red boot cuffs in red boots, free crochet pattern by Susan Carlson of Felted Button | Colorful Crochet Patterns

I Heart Boot Cuffs Free Crochet Pattern

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



 

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...
