Girls’ Ankle Boot Cuffs

Gianna’s Ankle Boot Cuffs

I received a Christmas order for a girl’s boot cuffs. Her tiny little ankles are so small that I made them with buttons instead of slip-on since I was worried they wouldn’t stretch properly over her feet. I had never made boot cuffs from any other color than the basics so the request for a light teal was different. I didn’t expect them to turn out as cute as they did!

I am sharing this pattern that I designed for a 7 year old. I made up the pattern as I went along so let me know if you have any questions.

Skill Level: Moderate
Materials: Measuring tape, yarn needle, scissors, buttons
Yarn: 1 skein of Vanna’s Choice Lion Brand yarn in Aquamarine
*Substitutions: any worsted weight or 4 ply yarn
Note: only about ½ of the skein will be used
Gauge: boot cuff length is 7”
Hook Size: H
Size: Child Ankle: 7” before stretch. Measure just above boot for circumference. Subtract .5” for width of cuff.

Abbreviations and Stitches:
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
sk – skip
vs – V-stitch here is dc, ch 1, dc in one st
mss – modified star stitch – I like the moogly tutorial, but I ended up only adding one stitch to the side of the previous star stitch instead of 3. This one stitch is the same as the 2nd she makes on the video (I just skipped the 1st and 3rd completely). Hopefully I’ll make a video for that one day. If you know what this modified version is called (if it exists), let me know!

R0: ch 30, turn

R1: beginning in 2nd ch from hook, sc across, turn (29)

R2: ch 1, mss across, sc in last st, turn (14 star stitches + 1 sc)

R3: ch 1, sc across, turn

R4: repeat row  2

R5: sc across, turn

R6: ch 3, dc same st, sk 2, *vs in same st, sk 2* across, dc in last st, turn, ch 3

R7 – R9: repeat row 6

R10 – R12: repeat R3 – R5

Fasten off

Gianna's Bott Cuffs Open

Button Holes: attach to opposite end of foundation chain. sc, *ch 3, sc 3* 4 times, ch 3, sc, fasten off

Buttons: I attached 3 buttons on each cuff, but you could attach up to 5 with the amount of button holes.

I am thrilled to offer you the PDF version of this pattern or you can save it to your Ravelry favorites!

Queen Cupcake Shopkins Hat Crochet Pattern

Crochet Pattern for Queen Cupcake Hat

I received an order for a Queen Cupcake Shopkins hat but wanted something different than what I found online. I also didn’t want a slouch beanie or a bunch of stuffing piled on top of a 7 year old head. This is what I came up with. Cute but still comfortable! I hope you enjoy making this as much as I did!

Skill Level: Intermediate

Material: crochet or yarn needles (I used crochet dude needles which really helped with the small details), small detail scissors, measuring tape

Yarn: *substitute any worsted weight yarn

  • ¼ skein Red Heart Super Saver Turqua*
  • ¼ skein Red Heart Super Saver Perfect Pink*
  • ¼ skein yellow yarn similar to Red Heart Super Saver*

I used what I had on hand for the yellow but I was the same weight and feel as red heart super saver. For the facial features, I used scrap yarn and here is what I know about those:

  • Caron Super Soft Black*
  • Impeccable White (has glitter in it)*
  • Scrap cross stitch thread in a dark brown

Notes: I used invisible joins. You may use any method you are comfortable with.

Abbreviations:
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet
fpdc – front post double crochet
MR – magic ring
sp – space
slst – slip stitch
crab stitch – reverse single crochet
picot – ch 3, sc in first ch (3rd from hook)
fsc – foundation single crochet
inv – invisible
*…* around – repeat instructions in between the *’s to the end of the round
clean turn – remove hook from loop, insert hook back into loop from the opposite side so that hook faces direction of work after turning; this is optional but makes it easier for sewing and adding trim to uneven edges

Abbreviations / stitches in between commas go in a single stitch.

Hooks: C, D, F, K

Frosting: Hook F, Blue Yarn, Gauge 4” = R1-R5 (approximately)

I took inspiration from the Divine Hat Pattern found on Ravelry but made adjustments for a frosted cupcake look:

R1: ch 2 (does not count as dc here or throughout), 15 dc in MR, inv join (15)

R2: ch 2, fpdc around every dc around, inv join around first fpdc (15)

R3: ch 2, fpdc around fpdc below ch 2, dc between fpdc’s, *fpdc around fpdc from previous row, dc in between fpdc’s* around, inv join (15 fpdc + 15 dc)

R4: ch 2, fpdc around fpdc below ch 2, dc in 1st sp between fpdc and dc, *fpdc around next fpdc, dc in 1st sp between fpdc and dc* around, inv join (15 fpdc, 15 dc)

R5-R6: ch 2, fpdc around fpdc below ch 2, 2 dc in first sp between fpdc and dc, *fpdc around next fpdc, 2 dc in 1st sp between fpdc and dc* around, inv join (15 fpdc, 30 dc) check gauge

R7-R8: ch 2, fpdc around fpdc below ch 2, 3 dc in first sp between fpdc and dc, *fpdc around next fpdc, 3 dc in 1st sp between fpdc and dc* around, inv join (15 fpdc, 45 dc)

R9-R10: ch 2, fpdc around fpdc below ch 2, 4 dc in first sp between fpdc and dc, *fpdc around next fpdc, 4 dc in 1st sp between fpdc and dc* around, inv join (15 fpdc, 60 dc)

R11-R12: ch 2, fpdc around fpdc below ch 2, 5 dc in first sp between fpdc and dc, *fpdc around next fpdc, 5 dc in 1st sp between fpdc and dc* around, inv join, fasten off with long tail, tighten tail left from MR and weave in. (15 fpdc, 75 dc)

Cupcake Wrapper: Hook K, Yellow Yarn, Gauge 4” = 4.5 rows (without stretch)

R0: ch 15, turn

R2: sc across chain, turn (14)

R3-R46: ch 1, sc in back loop, turn (14) check gauge after row 5

Fasten off with long tail. Sew ends together. Weave in both tails.

Using tail from frosting piece, weave down to row 11. Attach cupcake wrapper to frosting top by sewing 3 rows of wrapper to each shell except for every 5th shell where you will sew 4 rows to the shell. (15 shells x 3=45 rows + 1 row every 5th shell = another 3 rows for a total of 48 rows sewn evenly to 15 shells)

Cupcake Wrapper Bottom Edge: Hook K, Yellow Yarn

R1: Attach yellow yarn to bottom edge, ch 1, sc at the bottom of each row, join (48)

R2: ch 1, crab stitch around, fasten off

Birdy Reversible Style Boot Cuffs

I bought my daughter a pair of super high boots for her Halloween costume and she decided she likes to wear them all of the time. Thanks to the current popularity of boot cuffs, she tried on the various styles I had crocheted. They were all too frilly for boots that already make a statement. I made up this reversible boot cuff so that she would have an additional, but classic choice. I love the bird stitch so much that maybe I’ll use it in a matching scarf and hat! 

Skill Level: Easy

Materials: Measuring tape, yarn needle, scissors, stitch marker

Yarn: 2 skeins of Peaches & Crème, White
Substitutions: any worsted weight or 4 ply yarn

Gauge: doesn’t matter for this pattern. See measurement instructions.

Hook Size: H

Size: Standard Adult 12” before stretch

Measure just above boot for circumference. Subtract .5” for width of cuff.

Abbreviations Used:

st or sts – stitch or stitches
ch – chain stitch
sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet
fpdc – front post double crochet
bpdc – back post double crochet
sl st – slip stitch
rnd(s) – round(s)
inv join – invisible join

Special Stitches:
Front Post Double Crochet (fpdc) and Back Post Double Crochet (bpdc): see the Moogly video

Post Style Side

Rnd 1: ch. 44 (or length in multiples of 2 required to achieve size), join, sc in same st, sc in each ch around, inv join to first sc (44)

Rnd 2: ch 2 (does not count as bpdc on any round), fpdc around same sc, bpdc next st, *fpdc, bpdc* around, join around the post of first fpdc (22 fpdc + 22 bpdc)

Rnd 3: ch 2, fpdc around same fpdc, bpdc around bpdc from previous row, *fpdc, bpdc* around, join around the post of first fpdc (22 fpdc + 22 bpdc)

Rnd 4-7: Repeat rnd 3 (22 fpdc + 22 bpdc)

 

Birdy Style Side

Rnd 8: ch 2, *hdc in same st, sl st in next st* around, insert stitch marker between last and first stitch of next round, do not join (skip ch 2 from previous round so count remains even)

Rnd 9-17: Repeat rnd 8 without joining (22 hdc, 22 sl st)

Note: if the rounds are done properly you will notice a diagonal pattern developing

Rnd 18: sc around, sl st twice, fasten off
