I found my pictures that I had lost of previous boot cuff that I made (although this is not all of the boot cuffs I made). Some were gifts and I failed to take a pic before I gave them away.
Here are the buttons I used (love the deal $0.50/ea. when they were regularly priced at $7.49/ea.). I really like the look of the buttons also.
I used Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick in 'Wheat'.
These were finger knitted. This was the first time I tried finger knitting. I really like the non-perfect (primitive and rustic) look of the finger knitting.
Here they are with the buttons sewn on. I found the tutorial here at The Kurtz Corner.
Here they are with my boots.
Sorry about the glare with the flash.
Here is another pair that I made. I knitted these with knitting needles and used the knit stitch.
It is hard to tell from the pic, but I used 2 strands of yarn (2 different colors - Vanna's Choice in Chocolate and Vanna's Choice in Charcoal). I used US size 13 needles. (Bamboo needles are my favorite.)
Last pic with the buttons sewn on. I didn't use a pattern here. I just knitted across 3 or 4 inches (as tall as I wanted them to be) and then kept knitting until they went around the calf of my leg. I then sewed the 2 short ends together to form the cuff. It was a quick and easy project I did when the temp was in the single digits (unusually cold for around here) and I just wanted to stay inside where it was warm and cozy.
What's cozier than working with yarn and drinking coffee or hot chocolate?
