This pattern, some yarn, and your hard work and love will produce two boot cuffs, each of which will be made of two colors. You can choose to show either one of the two colors above the boot or both colors depending on your outfit or your mood.

Because detailed instructions for five different knitting approaches are provided, this is a wonderful opportunity to try your hand at one-at-a-time or two-at-a-time magic loop. The pattern is simple and, if you are working two-at-a-time, you can start your two cuffs in two different colors so that learning will be easier.

Thank you for knitting these boot cuffs and I hope that you enjoy the pattern and the knitting! Please post your finished project on Ravelry so that I can marvel at your work!
