I created them to match the fingerless mitts, hat and collar style infinity scarf which you can find in my Etsy Store.

I have one more thing which I’m  working on and then I promise no more basket weave stuff for a while.. (ho hum…)  I’ve kinda been a little addicted to creating it..   I LOVE IT!!

Anyway… onto the FREE pattern!!

 

These boot cuffs are worked in the round with no seaming needed. You join the rounds using slip stitch.

    These are great!! I love the weave look. BUT, your pattern does not tell how many to chain to begin with and what are we supposed to fdc or bdc into? I’m a little confused.

    Thanks,
    Denise

      Hi Denise,
      Thank you for your comment.

      If you look at the Main Pattern on Rnd 1, you will see that I tell you how many to Foundation Double Crochet.
      If you prefer to chain then do a DC row instead, then that’s fine. But the Foundation DC row gives you a much neater edge and it is stretchier too so that is really the best option.

      So you either need to start with 29, 33, or 37 stitches depending on which size you would like.

      Also you are making your Fpdc and Bpdc stitches into the posts of your Double Crochets from the previous row.
      So whether you start with a Foundation DC row, or a chain and then a DC row, you will have the DC posts to stitch into.

      Hope that helps!

        I just went to Youtube (love it) to learn how to do a foundation chain. I am now wondering, why, why, why, I never learned how to do this before. OMG I will definitely be doing foundation chains from this point forward. What an amazing stitch! On to the boot cuffs! I can’t wait to see them finished.
