Pair the Smokestack Boot Cuffs with the Cowl - and Hat!
The Smokestack Boot Cuffs pair with the Smokestack Cowl to make a free pattern set! While they look great on their own, I love exploring the different ways to use stitch patterns - and creating "sets" for wearing and gifting! And now there's a matching Smokestack Hat too!
Featuring Red Heart Gemstone
The Smokestack Boot Cuffs, like the cowl, are made with Red Heart Gemstone in the Onyx colorway - and they take a lot less than one skein this time! Gemstone has a gorgeous tweed or twisted look, which looks so pretty with these patterns.
Super Quick and Customizable
I love the extra warmth from a pair of boot cuffs - and I love how quick they are to crochet! You can whip up a pair in about an hour, depending on size. This makes this the perfect pattern for a last-minute gift, cold weather fix, or for selling at craft fairs.
And you can easily customize the size of your Smokestack Boot Cuffs for your own gauge or yarn - just start with any multiple of 2 stitches, and then try it on as you go!

If you would prefer to not begin with FDC, you can ch 2 more than called for for your size, skip the first 3 chs (count as first dc), and dc in each rem ch across. Then join and proceed with Rnd 2.
If you would prefer to not use the CSDC, you can ch 3 or use your preferred dc substitute.
Do not work into the top of the stitch you fptr around - it's already been worked with the post stitch.
Rnd 1: FDC 12(22, 32, 42); join to work in the round. (12(22, 32, 42) sts in every rnd of pattern)
Rnd 2: Ch 1, sc in each st around; join.
Rnd 3: CSDC in first st, *fptr around dc below next st, dc in next st; rep from * until 1 st rem, fptr around dc below last st, join.
Rnd 4: Rep Rnd 2.
Rnd 5: Ch 2 (does not count as a st), fptr around dc below first st, *dc in next st, fptr around dc below next st; rep to * until 1 st rem, dc in last st.

Accessories for your Ankles (and Legs)
And that’s how to crochet the Smokestack Boot Cuffs! I hope you enjoy making and wearing them. Be sure to take the measurement where you want to wear them though - if you want them to fit lower on the leg, around the ankle, measure there and adjust as needed!
Of course, these aren't the first boot cuffs I've designed! Be sure to check out the Moroccan Midnight Boot Cuffs and Ups and Downs Boot Cuffs, as well as all the other free crochet patterns on Moogly!

Hi. I'm confused about ROUND 5 and the direction to TURN. Do I stop working in the round and turn and go back over the stitches I just made?
Hi Karen! Sorry about that, that was an error. I've removed it from the pattern!
This pattern was a blessing!! My brain was goop when it came to gifting this year but I had this pattern saved and found it again recently and made several pairs yesterday. Thank you, they're so cute!!
♥ Thank you so much! Happy Holidays!
