I know we are all thinking about spring, (ahem…right here) but I have one more warm, wintry pattern to share. Maybe you can put these lacy boot cuffs in your queue for next winter, or maybe you can travel to WY and realize that is it still very much winter there. (We drove through a blizzard in WY this weekend!)

  1. I can’t seem to locate a link for the PDF file so I can put this on my Kindle….I would love to make these and the arm warmers for my daughter.

  2. It would be really great if you could make a video for these boot cuffs, for all the visual leaners. Love the pattern<3

  3. Hey, I started this project for the boot cuffs and I am confused where it says -37 for step 2. What does -37 mean?

      1. Omg now I see it. I feel stupid hahaha. I was reading step 2: subtract 37 and just couldn’t figure out what that could mean. Thanks so much. Love the picture! They look really cute. Can’t wait to finish and show them off!

  4. Using your tutorial and a book called I Taught Myself Crochet I am trying to teach myself how to make these for my daughter. When making part one it only took 26 rows of the 23 HDC stitches to reach all the way around her leg just a little below her knee cap.
    I have a couple questions about the next part. I was wondering on your part 38it says: Hdc 12.(ch.1, sk 1 stitch, Hdc into next stitch, Hdc3). I was wondering with some being in parenthesis and some not what does the parenthesis stand for ? Also would this part of stitching be the same for 26 rows as it is for your 37 rows? Thanks for your help.

    1. Hi Shelly,

      The parenthesis are around a whole part that is supposed to be repeated. This part is making the button holes, so you will repeat the entire sequence the indicated number of times. This would stay the same because there are only buttons on the top, so just adjust the rest of the stitches accordingly.

  5. Hi,
    I love these so thank-you for sharing your pattern. I’m really not sure yet how to figure out what you mean in steps 38 and beyond, but also if I add extra rows after 37, will that affect your instructions for the ending? Thanks.

    1. Hi Jenn,
      You are welcome! Yes, you can add extra rows, just come back to 38 when you are ready to finish. And can you explain further what is confusing you? 38 is making the edge and button holes. To make button holes you need to skip stitches, is that what is confusing you?

  6. I got 27 rows done and I am close to a foot so I used a H cuz I couldnt find my G I dont understand the second 1/2 of the instructions “left boot cuff: 37. I would also like to see a picture of the whole thing please thank you

  7. Oh my heck, Bethany you have been holding back with me. These are so cute. You have to teach me how to make these. I tried reading the pattern but it was greek to me. So after all the baby and the move if you could find the time I would love it. Love ya, Kellie
