About this Pattern

If you’re looking for a pair of boot cuffs with that traditional stockinette stitch look but you have no clue how to knit, you’re in the right place. With the Tunisian knit stitch you can create the knitting look you love with your crochet hook.

With this project you’ll learn how to crochet the Tunisian knit stitch so you can mimic the look of knitting in your projects. They work up as a simple rectangle in a matter of minutes and are later joined to form the boot cuff shape.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We prepared for you a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you’ll need to get started as well as written instructions to walk you through the quick and easy Tunisian crochet boot cuffs from start to finish.

worked in stitch pattern

This pattern is worked in a flat, rectangular piece and sewn together when complete. For best results, we recommend wet blocking before assembling it together. If you’re not familiar with blocking, check out our guide here.

To customize your size, measure the circumference of your leg and subtract 1/2″. Then make a foundation chain that measures the same length.
