This is an intermediate Crochet Pattern. Links are provided for video tutorials on the stitches that may not be common. This pattern uses the Waistcoat Stitch, which is a very old (1918 is the most recent date I am aware of it being published in a pattern) stitch. I learned it 40+ years ago, from my Grandmother, who was over 60 at the time,

This is one pattern pack in a line that will be released over the next few days.

The pattern should be worked with a softer worsted weight yarn, or a DK (3) that has a lazy drape. rigid yarns tend to be unyielding with this stitch pattern, and will provide a much larger finished garment.

It has not been tested with a #2 yarn, but I suspect if you use an H hook, you might get a good result, as with the boot cuff and legwarmer you want a soft, close fit.

There are two style options with the Boot Cuff, a Tall cuff, that works Beautifully with the Western Boot, and the Ugg style that hit mid calf. There is also a short style, that fits wonderfully at the top of the taller boot. Add the option of the legwarmers, and we have quite a bargain for the price of the pattern.

It is, as always my goal for success, so please feel free to contact me with any questions or to share your pictures of finished items. My contact info is in the pattern, or you may message me here at Ravelry.
