Whether you need a go-to pair of boot cuffs this fall and winter or you need a quick handmade gift, our simple ribbed boot cuffs are the way to go.

If you’re looking for a really simple pair of boot cuffs you can crochet in a matter of hours for gifts or for yourself, you’re in the right place. Our simple ribbed boot cuffs use one of our favorite techniques to crochet ribbing.

With this project you’ll learn how to crochet ribbing by crocheting in the back bar of half double crochet stitches, a technique you can use for all sorts of projects. They’re worked in a spiral so there’s no joining to fuss with either.
