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″.

Tools & Materials

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


4 sc = 1 inch


  • ch – Chain

  • 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. Once you have joined the cuff in the ribbed base, and you begin working on the lacy foundation, why do we turn our work instead of working in the round?

    • Hi Robin – If you work the shell stitch in rounds, the overall pattern and texture of the boot cuff will look different. This is because the shell stitch pattern when worked up normally (not in rounds) is completed in two rows. If you work in rounds you will only be crocheting the first row of the shell pattern and repeating until you finish the cuff. Essentially, if you work the pattern in rounds, you will not actually be creating the shell pattern that you see in my boot cuff example. Turning your work will allow you to alternately crochet the first and second rows of the shell stitch pattern. Does this make sense? I hope this helps! Good luck:-)
