The Prismatic crochet boot cuffs crochet pattern is written in a way that it can be made for any style of boot. Just take a measurement and follow the instructions to make a custom size boot cuff.
Below you will find the complete pattern and instructional photos for this pattern. You will also find all the materials, stitches, gauges, and sizing information.
Crochet Boot Cuffs for Any Boot
Everyone has a different style, and that means everyone likes different types of boots. There are ankle boots, mid-calf boots, and knee-high boots. I wanted to design a pattern that could be adjusted to whatever style of boot is your favorite. The pattern is designed to match the Prismatic Fingerless Gloves, Beanie, and Scarf.
A Flexible Crochet Pattern
You will notice that in this crochet pattern there is a lack of row counts. This is because we are not aiming for a certain number of rows, but we are aiming to meet a certain measurement. This is a measurement you will be taking before you start your project. That way the boot cuffs will be a perfect fit!
Long or Short? Child or Adult?
This pattern is written in a way that you will be able to adjust the pattern to fit anyone. I made crochet boot cuffs for my little girl and for myself. You can make your boot cuffs long or short. You can wear them inside your boot or outside. It is completely up to you.
The Premium Ad-Free PDF Pattern
Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructional photos and videos needed to complete the pattern, but I am also aware that several of us like to crochet on the couch, in the car, or in bed with a print out of the pattern. This is why I also offer a nicely formatted, easy to print, large font PDF version of the pattern that can be purchased on Etsy or Ravelry. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag or basket.

Half Double Crochet into the third loop – Instead of working your half double crochet into the front or back loop of your stitch, you will rotate your project forward and work your stitch into the middle bar or loop on the backside of the stitch right below the back loop. Watch the video tutorial for a demonstration.
Prismatic Crochet Boot Cuffs
-Written in US terms.
– I do not count my CH1, turning chain, as a stitch.
Part 1: Ribbed Cuff
First you will want to take a measuring tape and measure the circumference of your leg. Measure your leg in the spot that will be the very top of the boot cuff.
CH 10 (or CH 8 for a child size)
Row 1: SC in the 2nd CH from hook and each CH across.
Row 2-?: CH1, turn SC in BLO of each ST.
Continue repeating row 2 until your ribbed cuff measures 1/2 an inch less than your leg measurement.
If your gauge is correct, you can use the chart below to decide how many rows you need to crochet for the ribbed cuff.
|Leg Circumference||Boot Cuff Length||Number|
|Leg Circum.||Boot Cuff Length||Number|
|7.5 inches||7 inches||28||13.5 inches||13 inches||52|
|8 inches||7.5 inches||30||14 inches||13.5 inches||54|
|8.5 inches||8 inches||32||14.5 inches||14 inches||56|
|9 inches||8.5 inches||34||15 inches||14.5 inches||58|
|9.5 inches||9 inches||36||15.5 inches||15 inches||60|
|10 inches||9.5 inches||38||16 inches||15.5 inches||62|
|10.5 inches||10 inches||40||16.5 inches||16 inches||64|
|11 inches||10.5 inches||42||17 inches||16.5 inches||66|
|11.5 inches||11 inches||44||17.5 inches||17 inches||68|
|12 inches||11.5 inches||46||18 inches||17.5 inches||70|
|12.5 inches||12 inches||48||18.5 inches||18 inches||72|
|13 inches||12.5 inches||50||19 inches||18.5 inches||74|
After your cuff is large enough, fold your cuff in half so that the first and last row is next to each other. Work a SLST through both rows. SLST down the row, joining them together. (7 SLSTs for Child Size, 9 SLST for Adult Sizes)
Part 2: Crochet Boot Cuff Body
Turn the ribbed boot cuff inside out so that the slip stitched seam is on the inside of the cuff and that you are still able to crochet without turning your work. (Pictured above).
Color Note: If you are using 2 colors, you will alternate the color every other row. Use your solid color for the rows worked as regular half double crochet and use your variegated yarn for the rows where the half double crochet is worked in the third loop.
Cuff Body Row 1: CH1, work a HDC into the side of each row. SLST to the first HDC. (The number of stitches you have in this row should equal the number of rows worked in the ribbed cuff section.)
Cuff Body Row 2: CH1, work a HDC into the 3rd loop of each ST around. SLST to first HDC.
Cuff Body Row 3: CH1, work a HDC into each ST around. SLST to first HDC.
You will continue to repeat rows 2 and 3 until your cuff is as long as you would like it to be. Fasten off and weave in your ends once your boot cuffs are tall enough for you.
The Knee-high boot sample has a total of 9 rows in the Boot cuff body section.
The Long Mid-calf boot cuff sample has a total of 19 rows in the boot cuff body section.
The Ankle boot cuff sample has a total of 11 rows in the boot cuff body section.
The Child Size Ankle boot cuff sample has a total of 9 rows in the boot cuff body section.
Hopefully this will give you an idea of how long to make your boot cuffs, but truthly the choice is yours. I will depend on if you are wearing the cuff on the inside or the outside of your boot.
I hope you enjoy the crochet boot cuff pattern and if you have any questions at all just let me know in the comments below.
