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!

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 18: sc around, sl st twice, fasten off
