Free Pattern & Tutorial: Reversible Crochet Boot Cuffs

Last week I revealed my latest project which was a pair of cozy crochet boot cuffs. Today I’m posting the pattern!

Reversible Crochet Boot Cuffs

Free Crochet Boot Cuff Pattern

The following is an original crochet pattern for one pair of reversible boot cuffs. Each boot cuff is worked as one piece – no sewing required! The cuffs are fully reversible. There is no right or wrong side and they can be worn with the pattern or ribbing side showing. The finished cuff measures 6.5″ wide (approx 13″ circumference) and 6″ in height. The narrow opening measures 4.5″ (approx 9″ circumference). The boot cuffs are stretchy and can fit calf circumferences up to 15″.

As promised, I’m providing the pattern for free. You may use this pattern to make your own boot cuffs. Please do not copy my pattern. If you would like to share the pattern with a friend, please link directly to my post.

Tools & Materials

  • 1 ball Patons Classic Wool Worsted
  • 5mm Crochet Hook


4 sc = 1 inch


  • ch – Chain
  • sc – single crochet
  • sl st – slip stitch
  • sp – space

Ribbing Section (Boot Cuff Base)

Working your crochet stitches in the back loops only creates a ribbing effect. This is an easy way to add texture to your projects.

Start by chaining 11 stitches.

Foundation Row:  Sc in 2nd ch from hook – back loop only. *Sc next stitch back loop only. Repeat from * until end of row (10 stitches in total). Turn.

Rows 2-41: ch1, sc in back loops only next 9 stitches. Turn. Repeat.

Do not bind off. The boot cuff is worked as one piece. There is no sewing required.

Bring the two ends together and line up the stitches. Sl st in the back loops only across the row to join the base of the boot cuff together.

  1. Yay! I love my Hunters. Perfect for rainy Vancouver…

  2. Thank you for the feedback – it is much appreciated! Glad the cuff pattern worked out for you!

  3. I am so excited to be able to make these for my daughters and nieces, but mine doesn’t look like this :-(. I’m good with the foundation,but after that mine just got bigger and rufflier with each round. What am I doing wrong? I’m only on the fourth round, and this keeps up, I’ll have an eleventh round that’s as big as a skirt!

  4. Are you using the recommended hook and yarn? If your rounds are ruffling it sounds like you may be adding extra stitches. Here’s a great video on how to crochet the petite shell stitch which is what I used for my boot cuffs:

    I will send you an email!

  5. These are so nice looking, thank you so much for sharing your pattern.

  6. You are most welcome! Thank you for checking out my pattern.

  7. My daughter wanted hers with just the basic cuff – no lacy part, just the foundation! She LOVES them! I’ll see if I can get the picture in here to send…. cid:IMG_0359.jpg
    I don’t think that will work….

  8. Great idea! A basic rib stitch cuff sounds lovely. I’m not sure if pictures can be attached to comments. If you have a picture, I’d love to see it. Please send it to me via email:-)

    I’m enjoying this pattern and can’t wait for the finished product. I do have a question about round one of the shell pattern. The way I’m reading it; chain,, ch 2 sc in third chain from hook. (Skip 2 stitches) *skip 1 stitch 1sc, chain 2, sc in next chain stitch repeat from *

    I’m reading that I skip a total of 3 as I start the pattern part of this round. Is this correct?
    Also does the first sc after the beginning chain 2 go I the chain two base or the next sc?
    Sorry, I’m probably just trying to be too precise.

  10. Michaeline Fletcher says:

    Worried my comments didn’t get to you. Let me know so I can repost if needed.

  11. Hi Michaeline – I don’t have my crochet stuff in front of me at the moment. However, I can suggest a great video tutorial on how to crochet the petite shell stitch. If you have a moment, take a look as it will really help you if you are having trouble deciphering the pattern.

    I hope this helps! Please feel free to email me if you have any other questions!

  12. Got it! I manually approve of the comments and I’m battling a nasty cold today so I’m a bit behind.

  13. I just want to tell you how much I appreciate this free crochet pattern. Your instructions a wonderful & very easy to follow.
    I can’t say thank you enough. I have made two sets already and I’m on my third.
    I’m preparing to make three more for Christmas presents so thank you again for this wonderful pattern!

  14. I just want to say thank you very much for this wonderful pattern. Your instructions are very easy to follow.

    I have made two sets already I’m on my third and I am preparing to make more for Christmas presents, so again I say thank you very much for this wonderful pattern.

  15. Will you make a video of how to make these please and thank you

  16. Jacquie Friesen says:

    Hi, these are lovely! I also am having the issue of them getting rufflier as i add rows. I am wondering if it was vecause i am still only crocheting in the back loop on the shell part. It didnt say what to do so i just kept doing that as jn the foundation rows?

    Thank you for the pattern

  17. I’m going to try these cute cuff for a quick Christmas gift. I have two questions.
    1. In rows 2-41 of the ribbed section, what happens to the 10th stitch from the original foundation row?
    2. In the video that is referenced for the petite shell stitch, the person uses a half-double crochet in the shell pattern, but the boot cuff instructions don’t mention a hdc.

    Sorry if I’m being obtuse, but I’m a beginning crocheter! Thanks for the cute pattern.

  18. Thank you for your kind comments. I hope your boot cuffs are a hit. They do make great presents!

  19. Thanks for the great suggestion. I will consider making a video if I have a free moment during the holidays.

  20. Hi Vikki – I will try my best to answer your questions.

    1. In rows 2-41 of the ribbed section…Ch 1 counts as the first stitch of the row and is followed by 9 sc stitches making a total of 10 stitches/row.

    2. The video mentions hdc because that is how each row ends/starts. I don’t use the hdc stitch because the boot cuff is crochet in rounds. Each round is joined by a sl stitch.

    Good Luck!

  21. Hi Jacquie – The second part of the pattern is not crocheted in the back loops only. Crocheting in the back loops only creates a ribbing effect. As for the ruffling, it is likely that you may be adding an extra stitch or two.
