Want to wish all of my lovely followers a safe, happy & healthy New Year!
There is nothing new about my NYE as I plan to party as I normally do. At home in my sweats, order some Chinese take out & knit something awesome.

Well it’s been quite a while since I’ve blogged anything! Life has been hectic, crazy, great, stressful & everything in between. I’ve taken some time to study, research,jot & test my own patterns for my shop. Soooo on this beautiful fall day I thought I would pop in & share a free beginner lace knit boot cuff pattern to say thanks for hanging in there with me & dealing with my sporadic appearances on this blog. I can’t make any promises but hopefully I will manage to be a bit more consistent with my updates 😉

This boot cuff pattern is knit on straight needles and then seamed together using the wonderful seamless mattress stitch Please keep in mind I am far from an expert nor am I a very
experienced knitter. If you happen upon any mistakes within this pattern my apologies in advance 😉
If you have any questions/ suggestions in regards to this pattern please do not hesitate to bring them to my attention. I am unsure if this cuff can be worked in the round. If you happen to figure that out and would like to share…that’d be great! 😉

Pattern Notes:
Pattern is worked in multiples of 10 + 1
It is recommended to take measurements of calf circumference to be sure of proper fit. If you find cuff too snug around try going up a 1/2 to a full size needle.

Supplies:
Size 6.0mm straight needles
Worsted weight yarn of your choice. I would recommend staying away from novelty yarns as the details of this lace pattern may become lost. A flat wool or blended yarn works nicely.

Terms:
K-Knit
P-Purl
BO- bind off
Yo – yarn over. Wrap yarn over from back to front before knitting next stitch ( stitch increase)
Co – cast on.
Sl 1- slip one stitch purl-wise from left needle to right needle
K2tog- knit next two stitches together
Psso- pass slip stitch over. with left needle grab the slipped stitch from right needle and pass it over the k2tog just made. ( stitch decrease)

Pattern:
CO 51 stitches using the long tail cast on method
Row1. K1 *yo,k3,sl1,k2tog,paso,k3,yo,k1* repeat *-* to end applies to each row.
Row 2 & even rows: Purl all stitches
Row3. K1 *k1, yo, k2, sl1, k2tog, psso, k2, yo, k2*
Row 5. K1 * k2,yo, k1, sl1,k2tog,psso,k1, yo, k3*
Row 7. K1 *k3,yo,sl1, k2tog, psso, yo, k4*

Repeat these 8 rows 2x’s more for a 5 in length cuff. Add additional repeats for desired length.

BO on last purl row (8) leaving a tail long enough to stitch side seam.

Happy knitting!
