I get lots of requests for “X” to match the “Y” patterns here on Moogly, and I’m always happy to oblige when I can! In that vein, the Luscious One Skein Cowl pattern inspired a hat, fingerless mitts… and now, a matching pair of boot toppers! Introducing the Luscious One Skein Boot Cuffs!
Like all the patterns in the Luscious line here on Moogly, you can make these with just one skein of Lion Brand Unique, or the bulky yarn of your choice. My favorite is the Grapevine colorway, which I’ve used for all the items shown here – such great color variation! Looking for the other patterns?

Click on linked stitches for tutorials, or visit the Crochet Abbreviations page for more stitch definitions. Because this is an 8 st repeat, you cannot upsize or downsize by changing stitch count without drastically changing the size. Instead, you can change the size by going up or down a hook size.

Et voila! You can see this stitch pattern in action in the Dropped Doubles Video Tutorial. It’s a little different – rows, vs rounds – but the structure is very much the same. I hope you enjoy this boot cuffs pattern very much! Is there a pattern missing from the Luscious line? Let me know in the comments!

Hi and Happy New Year….I would love to learn how to FDC.
I at one time started to learn but never really got to learn.
I would truly appreciate your help.
Thank You so very much.
Hi Joanne! Thank you! You can see my FDC tutorial HERE. 🙂
These are super easy and cute but came out way too big (and I have wide calves), I didn’t think a hook change would make a big enough size difference so I reduced by 8 stitches and they are now perfect. Used bulky yarn and 9 mm hook as per the directions. Thanks for the pattern!
Glad you were able to make them work for you Rachelle! There is such a wide variety within the “bulky” designation it can be tricky. 🙂
