Boot cuffs are all the rage and look so cute on. I love seeing all the different chunky knit variations, including the ones made from old sweater sleeves and patterns for knitting your own. These lace ones are a bit more delicate and whimsical. They would patch perfectly with a pair of leggings or jeans.
During one of my trips to the local fabric store, I found a spool of stretchy lace border which was 6 inches wide and knew it would be perfect for a project such as this. At $3/yard you can’t go wrong. You can also add little details to accessorize the cuffs, such as little ribbon bows or buttons in my case.
You will need:
Stretchy lace border (you can find them in differing widths)
Buttons or lace bows
1) Measure the circumference of your calf at the widest point.
2) Cut 2 lengths of lace approx. 1/2 inch shorter than the circumference of your calf.
3) Sew a seam to attach the two raw edges together, forming a tube shape. Because of the lace, I chose a zigzag stitch to ensure that it was secure.
4) Once the cuffs are sewn together, add decorative detail such as buttons.
And there you have it. A super simple craft that will take 10 minutes to complete!
