Simple boot cuff knitted in the round

Simple boot cuff knitted in the round

 For PDF version click the title above the picture,

Using aran weight yarn and 4.5mm needles cast on 52 stitches (this will cheerfully fit the top af a UK size 5 Doc Marten, for larger or smaller cuffs add or subtract stitches in increments of 4)

Join to knit in the round (use whichever style cast on you prefer, just make sure it’s not too tight) and knit in 2×2 rib (knit 2, purl 2) all the way around. Keep going until the cuff is about 5cm (2 inches) long. Change to pattern as set out below. (Don’t forget that you can use the ‘tail’ from the cast on as a guide to help you remember where each round starts and finishes)

Round 1; knit all stitches

Round 2; *slip 1 stitch purlwise, knit 1* repeat from * all the way around

Repeat rounds 1 and 2 until work measures approx 10cm (4 inches) from cast on finishing with a ‘Round 2’.

Cast off LOOSELY (you want to be able to get the thing over your ankle!)Don’t worry if it curls a little. Sew in the ends, slip it on your leg with the smooth side outwards and the ribbing at the top. Pop on your boot and fold the ribbing half over it.

This version was written in a tearing hurry as the computer I am using is needed by it’s rightful owner! I’ll try to have an improved version up next week when I get the use of the computer again! Should all be OK now!
