Recipe - Knitted Boot Cuff - Time: 1 Afternoon

Ingredients

  • Yarn
  • Circular Needle
  • Buttons
  • Needle
  • Thread
  • Elastic Lace Trim
  • Plastic Yarn Needle
  • Stitch Marker (Colored Yarn Piece)

You Will Also Need:

  • Scissors

TIP: This is an intermediate knitting pattern, please watch the video for more in-depth instructions.

Step 1

1. Casting On

Cast on your stitches (40 for small or 52 for medium/large) and place your stitch marker(the short colored piece of yarn) on the right-hand needle to begin knitting in the round. Make sure that your work is not twisted. Weave in the tail yarn with the first four stitches. 

2. Knitting the Edge of the Cuff

Begin by knitting 2 stitches, then purling 2 stitches. Continue this pattern (knit 2, purl 2) until you reach the stitch marker. Repeat 3 more times to create 4 total rows of rib stitch. Tip: make sure to always knit in the knitted stitches and purl in the purled stitches.

3. Decrease for the Medium/Large Only 

Decrease the work by two, allowing for  the lace pattern to be a 10-stitch pattern. At the beginning of Row 1 knit your first two stitches together, knit 25, knit two together again, and finish by knitting the remaining 23 stitches. Begin the lace pattern below on Row 2.

4. Lace Pattern

See the back for instructions on preforming YO and Sl 1 K2tog PSSO stitches

• Rows 1 and 3: Knit all stitches
• Row 2: *YO, K3, Sl 1-K2tog-PSSO, K3, YO, K1*
• Row 4 *K1, YO, K2, Sl 1-K2tog-PSSO, K2, YO, K1, P1*

• Row 5 and 7: *K9, P1*

• Row 6: *K2, YO, K1, Sl 1-K2tog-PSSO, K1, YO, K2, P1*

• Row 8: *K3, YO, Sl 1-K2tog-PSSO, YO, K3, P1*

Repeat these eight rows for the pattern one more time.

Row 9 (Medium/Large Only): KFB, Knit 25, KFB, Knit until end

5. Finishing Off the Cuff

End the pattern with the same 2x2 ribbing pattern in Step 2, then bind off loosely. Use the plastic yarn needle to weave in the ends of the yarn and trim the excess.  

6. Pinning on the Lace Trim

Turn the finished boot cuff inside out and pin the lace evenly around the top of the cuff, making sure it is peeking out evenly around the knitted work. 

7. Sewing on the Lace Trim 

Secure the lace trim with a simple stitch along the top edge of the boot cuff. Turn the boot cuff right side out and sew the buttons to the edge. Repeat this step on the second boot cuff.

 

Yarn Over (YO)

A yarn over makes an extra stitch on the needle and creates a deliberate hole in the pattern. To make a yarn over (YO) stitch, bring the yarn in front of your work and then wrap it around your right needle while knitting the stitch. 

SL 1 K2TOG PSSO

Slip the first stitch over to the right needle with out knitting it, then knit 2 together by inserting the right needle from front to back into the next 2 stitches on the left needle, wrap the yarn around the right needle  (as when knitting) and pull it through. To complete preform a PSSO by passing the slipped stitch over the K2tog just made.
