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...


• Yarn—





# of Skeins


Monkey Red (MC)




Ivory (CC)


very small bit


I Love This Cotton






100% cotton


or any worsted weight yarn of your choice


• Hook—G (4.0mm)


• Tapestry or yarn needle




• Sample cuffs = 13in (33cm) in diameter X 5.5in (14cm) high


• Cuff can be adjusted to fit any size leg by measuring around the leg—approximately 5.5 inches below the knee and making your starting chain when stretched to that measurement. Remember, cotton is stretchy so pull tighter than you would if using acrylic.
