My Grey Sock Boot Cuffs -free crochet pattern-


I was finishing up a project one day that used these yarns, and didn't really have enough left to make anything big.  Then I went on to make some boot cuffs using a different color and pattern for a friend... and while making those boot cuffs, the idea for these boot cuffs popped into my head.  I've included 3 different sizes, depending on where you will wear them on your legs, as boots have different heights. The small (12 inch) size is the standard size. I really like the traditional grey/red/white colors that you often see in knit socks (and monkeys) so here it is!
