Difficulty: intermediate/advanced beginner

These boot cuffs work up really fast and stretch over the boot to stay put. These cuffs are worked for boots with a top shaft circumference of 39 centimeters (approx. 15 1/4 inches) but can easily be changed to fit smaller/larger boots.
I worked these with SirDar Snuggly Baby Bamboo yarn with a F/3.75mm hook with a gauge of 6stsx7sts=1inch (2.5cm). Any other DK weight yarn can be used.

Experience with front-post/back-post stitches would be helpful in completing the pattern. Stitches used in the pattern:
ch, sl, sc, dc, fpdc, bpdc
