Step up your cold weather style with Entangled Boot Cuffs. Wear these versatile boot cuffs four ways: Cables up, cables cuffed over, ribbing up, or ribbing cuffed over. One pair of cuffs – four different looks! I have to admit my favorite is cables up! I just love cables – the more the merrier. Another thing I love about cables is that they look much more difficult to execute than they really are. If you can knit and purl, you can do cables.
This pattern is written for 5 sizes to fit a broad range of calf sizes – 11.5, 12.75, 14, 15.25, 16.5” (29, 32.5, 35.5, 38.5, 42 cm) circumferences. Overall boot cuff length measures in at approximately 9.5” (24 cm) for all sizes.
My sample cuffs (size 14”/35.5 cm) were knit using two 3.5 oz/100 gr (220 yds/201 m) skeins of Cascade 220 (100% Peruvian Highland Wool) in Oyster (8407). You’ll want to pick a similar yarn for hard-wearing durability as once you put these on, you’ll find yourself wearing them a lot. This particular pair walked off to college right after our photoshoot!
The cable stitch pattern is charted, but the pattern features complete written line by line instructions so the ability to read a chart is not necessary to work this pattern. If you don’t own short circular needles, they are great for this type of project. I used 12″ circulars for this pair and was very happy to have them.
