- SPECIAL STITCH: V st – (dc, ch 1, dc) in the same st
Row 1: With Color A, FDC 42(45, 51, 54); join with a sl st to work in the round.
Rows 2 – 4: Ch 2 (does not count as a st), dc in each st around; join to first dc with a sl st.
Row 5: Ch 4, dc in 1st st (V st made), *skip 2 sts, V st in next st; repeat from * around until 2 sts remain, skip last 2 sts, join with a sl st. Remove the hook from the active loop and place a stitch marker (pm) in the loop to secure it, so it won’t pull out as you work the other color.
Row 6: With Color B, join with sl st in ch sp of 1st V st of previous round, ch 4, dc in the same ch sp (V st made). V st in each ch sp around. Pull active loop and working yarn of Color A to front of fabric, then join with sl st to 3rd ch of ch-4. Remove hook from loop and pm in loop.
Row 7: Replace hook in active loop of Color A, ch 4, dc between first and last V of the row before the previous round (NOT in the ch sp, but between the Vs). V st between the V sts of round before the previous round to end, enclosing previous round. Leaving working yarn and active loop of Color B behind fabric, join with sl st to 3rd ch of ch-4. Remove hook from loop, pm in loop.
Row 8: Insert hook in the ch sp of the first V st of the previous round. Replace hook in active loop of Color B and pull it through the V to the front, leaving working yarn behind. Ch 4, dc in the ch sp of that first V. V st in each ch sp around. Pull active loop and working yarn of Color A to front of fabric, then join with sl st to 3rd ch of ch-4. Remove hook from loop, pm in loop.
Rows 9 – 10: Repeat Rows 7 – 8, break Color B and finish off.
Row 11: Repeat Row 7.
Row 12: Ch 2, dc in each ch sp and st around; join with a sl st in 1st dc. (42,(45, 51, 54) sts)
Row 13: Ch 2, fpdc in 1st st, bpdc in next st, *fpdc in next st, bpdc in next st; repeat from * around, join with a sl st in first fpdc, break yarn and finish off.
Repeat for 2nd boot cuff.
And that’s all there is to it! I hope you enjoy this pattern, as well as the rest of the Moroccan Midnight Collection!
