2 Color Reversible Boot Cuff Pattern

2 Color Reversible Boot Cuff Pattern

Last winter, my sister sent me a picture of crocheted boot cuffs and asked if I could knit them for her.  The boot cuffs looked easy enough and I knitted a pair for her.  While surfing Pinterest, I noticed the boot cuffs are everywhere.  The boot cuffs can be knitted in S/M or L/XL.   (Shown above is size S/M)  I knitted the boot cuffs in gray marble and oatmeal beige tweed. You can also find them for sale at Etsy  Here is what you need to knit them: 

  • Yarn
    2 Colors of worsted weight yarn will do (I like thinner yarn that way it’s not so bulky under the boot)
  • Needles
    US Size 7 DP Needles or 12 inch US Size 7 Circular Needle (for ribbing) and US Size 9 DP Needles or 12 inch US Size 9 Circular Needle (for stockinette stitches)
  • Supplies
    Stitch Marker
    Darning Needle

Abbreviations :
K = Knit
P = Purl
CO = Cast On
BO = Bind Off

Size : S-M, L-XL
CO 48, 52
With needle size 7 and  Color “A” CO 48/52, join for knitting in the round without twisting
Rows 1 – 10;  2 x 2 ribbing, *k2, p2* to end of row
Change to needle size 9 and knit 5 rows (or more if you want longer cuffs) Change to Color “B” and knit 5 rows (or more if you want longer cuffs to match previous color)
Change to needle size 7 and continue in 2 x2 ribbing for 10 rows.
