Reversible Boot Cuffs

posted in: Knitting | 0

 I love finding a pattern that uses up some of the odds and ends of my yarn stash.  This little boot cuff pattern was a quick and easy knit and used up some light and dark grey yarn.  These are reversible boot cuffs knitted in a rib pattern in the round with 5 mm circular needles.

 Here’s the pattern if you want to try it yourself.  There is also a Revelry pattern.

Are you on Revelry?  I am but don’t update my projects on there like I used to.  But it is a great resource for finding patterns, both free and paid, and it gives you the opportunity to see the finished object.

Here is the start of the boot cuffs.  I used my yarn winder to wind up the dark and light yarn.  The centre pull balls make for tangle free knitting.

I found them a bit stretchy, probably from the yarn I used, but in a way that is good as it was easy to get them on and off and over the top edges of the boots.

I think they will be great at keeping pant legs tucked inside winter boots.

They also fit nicely over to tops of my rubber boots and will hopefully stop those edges rubbing against my legs.  There are times in the spring when I need boots that are deeper than my favourite pull on ones.

Can you see the possibilities of knitting them in all different colours to match your outfit?  With this pair I can have the light grey side showing or the dark grey side My photos showed using one of each … perhaps I’ll wear them that way to make a fashion statement.
