Shell Lace Boot Cuffs

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This pattern only uses one skein of yarn, so you should be able to make it from your stash without having to brave the elements for craft supplies. The pattern was inspired by a friend who wanted a set of boot cuffs for her daughter.

Boot cuffs have been all the rage lately as they create a cute little decoration just above the boot, and they can be made in multiple colors to match any outfit. I’ve been wanting to make some for some time now, so my friend’s request was the perfect opportunity to do so.
As you can see, they only cover the top of the calf, so it doesn’t get too crowded in your boots.
