Snowflake Boot Cuff Crochet Pattern

When I was working on the Snowflake Boot Cuff Crochet Pattern design, I decided that I wanted something a little out of the ordinary.  As I sat down to work, my daughter sang along with Disney’s Frozen.  I instantly knew what I wanted to do.  I ran upstairs and grabbed my brightest white yarn.  When I was finished, I knew I’d been successful.  My daughter looked wouldn’t take them off all day because, “I feel like Elsa,” she proclaimed.  This was probably one our best ever photo shoots, and I just wish I could put all one hundred pictures on this post.

The Written Snowflake Boot Cuff Crochet Pattern

This pattern is written in US crochet terms.

Materials

  • 4 Ply, worsted weight acrylic yarn (shown in Red Heart Super Saver)
  • Yarn needle
  • Crochet hook size J10/6.0mm

Gauge and Size

Gauge is not completely necessary for this pattern.  One size will fit most children between 6 months and 5T.  To increase or decrease the size, you may add or subtract six chains and hdcs wherever counts are noted to have enough stitches for the edging.

Extra Tips

You can change the way the rounds are joined and started to fit your preference.  Some may choose to use an invisible or slanted joining method.  You could also continue in rounds without using a slip stitch as long as your last round has a count divisible by six for the edging, IE: 18, 24, 30, etc.  You may use whatever colors you prefer or have on hand.  This pattern is great for using up any scraps you might have in your stash.  If you have any questions while completing this pattern, please feel free to email me at clrinaldi1989@gmail.com.
