About this Pattern

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.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you’ll need to get started as well as written instructions to complete the simple ribbed boot cuffs from start to finish.
