Shelly Boot Cuffs - Teen/Adult Small

Hey everyone!!

I know that it has been a looong time since I have been on here and yet you guys keep on coming back!!  That has totally inspired me, I must say!  Soooo... In my spare time between work and parenting I have been working on some new stuff for my Etsy Store (yes, we are totally back on Etsy), Ravelry Store, and Craftsy Store!!

There are some patterns that I have listed under the "Dollar Deals" that include some infinity scarfs, tablet cases, and now including boot cuffs!  I have been kinda revamping things mentally and they are just starting to come together in reality... Or virtually!!  lol

Anyhow...  Please bare with me as I fumble through things on here!  This is the last pattern that I had tested!  It has NOT been listed in any of my shops!  I unfortunately do NOT have very good pix of it though... Sorry about that... haha I am seriously a work in progress!

So... I am thinking that these can be used with the cuff side up OR with the shell side up.  I do have a matching infinity cowl that I am posting soon, just not sure where yet!

Please enjoy this Shelly Boot Cuff and feel free to post some pix of your finished creations on the Facebook page!  I love seeing what others do with my creations!!


Shelly Boot Cuff Teen/Adult

 Small
J Hook
Worsted Weight Yarn – Red Heart with Love in “Pewter” was used in the sample

Notes
A Foundation Single Crochet (fsc) was used in my sample; you can follow the alternative directions if you are not comfortable with this.

There is a video tutorial for how to make the fdc, or Foundation Double Crochet.  To change this up and make the fsc you simply begin with a chain 2, and then follow along making the chain and single crochet.  As soon as I get situated in our new home I will work on making some more videos to help out on this.

RND 1 – Fsc 36, sl st to 1st fsc, ch 1
RND 1 Alternative Directions – Ch 36, sl st to beg ch, ch 1, sc in each ch, sl st to 1st sc
RND 2 – Hdc in the 1st st, *fpdc in the next st, hdc in the next st* repeat around, fpdc in the last st, sl st to beg hdc.

Fasten off & weave in ends – You will have a bit of a gap where you began, I use the tail to attach the two sides and close that gap.  You can see this clearly in the bottom center of picture #1.
