Make them in any size and any color of your choice! Perfect for gifting or to make for markets!
Let’s dive into the deeds:
Before you start with this crochet boot cuffs, here are some important things to know and some background around this pattern.
The Style of the Twisted Boot Cuffs Crochet Pattern
The Twisted Boot Cuffs crochet pattern was inspired by my Twisted Headband Pattern which I released when I started my blog. I wanted something to fit to the headband as a set and I couldn’t be more happy about the outcome! The Crochet Boot Cuffs work up very fast, using the same pattern as the Twisted Headband. Then at the end, I added a ribbing with a smaller hook so the boot cuffs would stay in place!
Now always make sure of your measurements! You want these boot cuffs to fit over your leggings / jeans so when you do measure your legs, be sure to wear pants! I know, that sounds weird… me requesting you to wear pants. Haha
Anyway…. moving on 🙂

Some FAQ and answers:
Can I adjust the size of the Crochet Boot Cuffs?
YOUR measurements are very important in this pattern. Make sure to take your measurements at the thickest part of your calve/or where you want your boot cuff to be while wearing the pants. Then make your foundation chain by multiples of 6 + 2 to the measurements (give it about an half inch of ease). The foundation chain should fit a bit looser, because when you add the ribbing with your smaller hook, it will singe in the boot cuff.
What Yarn and Hook Should I use?
I tested this pattern with #4 worsted weight yarn and aran weight yarn. Both work equally as good! You can use any type of worsted weight yarn, just be sure to make a gauge swatch to see if you need a bigger or smaller hook.
I also used a Size 5mm Hook (US H/8) and 5.5mm (I/9) Boye Crochet Hooks!
If you reside in the US or abroad of South Africa, you can use something like Caron Simply Soft or Red Heart Super Saver, if you use yarn from full 100g balls, you will be able to make both the cuffs and your Twisted Headband to make the set complete!

- Chain 2 at the beginning of the WS rows counts as a dc.
- Chain 1 at the beginning of the RS rows does not count as a stitch.

Finish off your yarn and leave a long tail for sewing.
Create the twist:
To make the twist for the boot cuff you are going to do the following:
For a full photo tutorial, head on over to the Twisted Headband pattern!
- Firstly turn the boot cuff over so the right side is facing you and place a stitch marker in the middle of each short side to indicate the halfway point of each side.
- Secondly, grab the left short side of the rectangle in your left hand and form a “C”.
- Thirdly, grab the right short side of the rectangle in your right hand and do the same, form a reversed “C”.
- Now, bring both sides together, still with the “C” in place and intertwin them together. It should be one layer of the left side, followed by one layer of the right side. Then one layer of the left side and ending with one layer of the right side.
- Using the long tail and a tapestry needle, seam these layers together – ensure that you are always going through all 4 layers in a back and forth motion. Once you have reached the other side, you can whip stitch back down the other way for extra security.
- Weave in your ends, flip the boot cuff inside out, and move on to the brim of the boot cuff.
Crochet the brim:
Switch to 5mm hook:
- Turn your boot cuff so you can work on the bottom to crochet the ribbing.
- With the twist facing you, attach your yarn to the left side of your boot cuff.
- Now, ch1 and sc around the boot cuff in each stitch as evenly as possible until you reach the 1 stitch before the twist.
- Dc3tog over the next 3 sts, grabbing the stitch before the twist, the stitches in the twist itself and the next stitch. Continue to sc around until you reach the beginning of the round and slip stitch to the 1st stitch to join.
Row 1: To start the brim, ch7 and sc in the 2nd ch from the hook. Sc in each st until you reach the end. Now slip stitch into the nxt 2 sts (which you will find on the cuff). Turn your work.
Row 2: Skip the 2 slip sts and sc in the BLO of the following 6 sts and turn at the end.
Row 3: ch1, sc in each of the nxt 6 sts, slip stitch in the following 2 sts (on the cuff), turn.
Repeat row 2 and 3 until you reach the beginning of the brim again.
At the end, finish off your yarn and turn your cuff inside out. Seam the 1st and last rows together and weave in your yarn tails.
And there you have your Twisted boot cuff!
Remember to make two!
