Sweetheart Boot Cuffs
Here’s a quick and easy boot cuff pattern that will keep your legs looking stylish and a little warmer, in boots. The design is simple with a ribbed bottom for a comfortable fit and I graded the yarn colors in the top rows for that fun ombre look. This pattern is a great way to use up small amounts of yarn too.
I love that the clusters look like rows of little hearts hugging your legs!

Sweetheart Boot Cuffs
Sizes: Small, Medium, Large, X Large – are in ( ).
- Worsted weight yarn in 4 colors
- Hook US H/5.00 mm
- Tapestry Needle
Gauge: 14 sc and 17 rows = 4″ (10 cm)
• Beg = beginning
• ch= chain
• sl st = slip stitch
• sc = single crochet
• sc2tog = single crochet 2 stitches together
• dc = double crochet
• sl st(s) = slip stitch(es)
• st(s) = stitches
DC Cluster (dc-cl): Yarn over and insert hook in the designated stitch, draw up a loop, yarn over and pull through first 2 loops on hook, yarn over and insert hook in the same stitch, draw up a loop, pull through first 2 loops on the hook, yarn over and pull through all loops on the hook.
- The cuff is worked in rows and seamed, then, you will add rounds for the top.
- Work 1st and last stitch in both loops, work all other stitches in Back Loop Only (BLO)
Row 1: Ch (12, 12, 14, 14), sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. You will have (11, 11, 13, 13) sts for remainder of cuff rows.
Row 2: Ch1, turn, working in BLO, sc each st to end.
Repeat Row 2 (32, 36, 42, 48) more times.
Last Row (joining seam): Ch1, turn, bring both ends of cuff together and match sts, working through both layers, sl st to close the cuff. Do not fasten off. This is the Wrong Side of the cuff.
Turn inside out so that Right Side is facing you. You will be working in rounds to complete the top.
Round 1: Ch1, working in sides of cuff rows, sc (33, 39, 45, 51) evenly around cuff (this works out to approximately 1 sc per row with an adjustment to end up with a stitch count that is divisible by 3), join with sl st to 1st sc.
Round 2: In first st make [ch 2, dc in same st(counts as first dc-cl), ch 1, dc- cl], *skip 2 st, in next st [dc-cl, ch 1, dc-cl]*, repeat between * to end, sl st to join in top of first dc (11, 13, 15, 17 sets of stitches)
For the remaining three rounds: If you are changing yarn colors, fasten off and join your new color in the first chain-1 space. If you are continuing with the same color, sl st into the chain-1 space to move your starting position.
Round 3: In first chain-1 space make [ch 2, dc in same space (counts as first dc-cl), ch 1, dc- cl], *in next chain-1 space make [dc-cl, ch 1, dc-cl]*, repeat between * to end, sl st to join in top of first dc (11, 13, 15, 17 sets of stitches)
Rounds 4 and 5 : Repeat Round 3

Love the entire set! Thank you and all others who so generously gave this beautiful pattern.
How interesting that when I was growing up, mixing red and pink was a real no-no – as was for red heads to wear red or pink.
The very first needlepoint that I designed for my daughter’s birth was pink and red! Much frogging to finally get this combo. Alas, when all grown up, my daughter changed her name and did not want the sampler with her old name on it. Bonus: *I* have it!
IOW, I love pink and red that you show! Thank you!

Love these patterns. Made the wrist warmers for myself and hooking up the boot cuffs for my daughter as I don’t have boots. On to the headband, but need a bit more yarn. Thanks for sharing your talents!
Glad you liked them! Please share your finished project pics!

Are the boot cuff measurements taken when they are unstretched? And for the flat measurement, is that the width of just one side of the cuff, or is it the circumference?
They are measured flat, so you would have to double for the circumference and you can expect approximately 2″ stretch. I added the note to the pattern too for clarification.
So when it says chain 14 to start, should i actually be chaining 28, otherwise it seems like a very narrow calf, or am i doing it wrong?
The 14 is a vertical measurement. You will work the 14 until it is long enough for the calf, then join and work the remainder of the pattern in the opposite direction as noted in the pattern.
They’re gorgeous! I’m in total love with the colours! Thank you for sharing 🙂

The sweetheart set is awesome, but cannot find the headband pattern on the hooked haberdasher site. I found the hand warmers on Charmed by Ewe, but no headband to be found. Thanks.
The link has been updated. Take another look please 🙂

You are so right, they look great in any color combo!
