15 DIY Knitted Boot Cuffs for Fall

Even though we’re usually cold weather lovers, there is something satisfying about pulling out our favourite fall boots and putting them on with warm socks. No matter how much we dread cold weather, we can’t pretend it’s not a fashionable season! Lately, however, we’d been finding ourselves a little extra chilly, so we’ve been adding one more layer to our boots-and-socks combo, and it’s one that uses our favourite DIY skill: knitting! We just can’t get enough of knitting boot cuffs for ourselves and everyone we know.

Just in case you love the idea of knitting different kinds of boot cuffs this fall just as much as we do, if not more, here are 15 of the nicest looking and most comfortable patterns we’ve come across so fat this fall!

1. Rebekah’s boot cuffs


Are you hoping to keep things quite simple overall because, despite being a very neat and tidy knitter, you’re still a bit of a beginner as well? Then perhaps the way this pattern from Have You Met My Cats features a very simple twist of two stitches within some easy ribbing will be the kind of project you’re looking for.

2. Garter and stockinette boot cuffs


Just in case you’d rather keep things in the real of simple, traditional, and most importantly quick, here’s a pattern that sticks to a bit of garter and stockinette! You can’t get much easier (and yet still stylish) than this boot cuff pattern outlined step by step thanks to Wake and Whimsy.

3. Owl boot cuffs


Perhaps you’d actually like to challenge yourself a little bit in the stitch variation department by knitting a cute motif right into the fabric of your boot cuffs themselves? In that case, we think you just might be the perfect person to give these adorable owl themed cuffs, complete with cute beaded eyes, a try! Get the full details for making it happen on Fox Bom.

4. Julia boot cuffs


Are you quite interested indeed in making a pair of boot cuffs that look quite simple and streamlined for the most part, but that have at least one stand out feature people can admire? Well, if your personal style is quite girly, then we think perhaps these adorably frilled cuffs outlined in detail on Pepperberry Knits might be right up your alley!

5. Leafy boot cuffs


Perhaps you’re actually not only a more experienced knitter but also the kind of hand crafter who adores going above and beyond the average pattern in order to make things that are textured, beautiful, and impressive looking, not to mention unique? In that case, we think you just might be the perfect person to try your hand at making these stunning leafy boo cuffs outlined step by step on Sleake Knits. We can’t get over how adorable the addition of a lady bug bead is!

6. Hurricane boot cuffs


Did we really catch your attention when we started talking about boot cuffs that are easy enough for near beginners but that still have some kind of stitch variation to them, but you just haven’t quite seen the design that catches your eye yet? In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at this lovely pattern from Knit Grit that gets its name from the way the contrast stitches spiral around the cuffs.

7. Teddy bear boot toppers with pom pom ears


Were you quite intrigued indeed by the idea of making adorable little boot cuffs that have an animal theme but instead of making your creature out of raised stitches, you’d prefer to do a little bit of colour work and create an image right in the cuffs itself? In that case, we think you might get along very well indeed with these adorable teddy bear themed cuffs from Simplicity, particularly if you’re a big fan of pom poms!

8. Lace boot cuffs


Maybe you’re a slightly more experienced knitter who has been hoping to put your lace knitting skills to good practice and create something lovely and delicate looking, but that will still keep you warm? In that case, this pointed lace pattern outlined in detail on Rainbow Warrior is absolutely the kind of pattern you’ve been looking for.

9. XOXO Cable boot cuffs


Were you quite intrigued indeed by the idea of making contrasting stitch variations that results in a sort of raised image, but you’re still not quite convinced by the owls we showed you earlier on our list? Then we think perhaps you’ll get along a little better with something like these X’s and O’s themed cuffs from Lewis Knits! These make a fantastic gift for a loved one.

10. Layered lace boot cuffs with buttons and cables


Were you feeling pretty enthusiastic about the idea of making more complicated cuffs that take a bit more skill but the leaves just weren’t quite the aesthetic you were aiming for, even though they’re very pretty? Then perhaps you’d prefer this frilled looking cuff that combines the construction of layers with a bit of lace knitting, a cable, and some simple buttons. Get the full details for making ones of your own on Pattern Duchess.

11. Twisted boot cuffs


Has learning how to cable actually been your main goal all along in looking for a boot cuff pattern from the start, but you’d still like to keep things quite basic while you learn? Well, just because a technique is basic doesn’t mean it has to look like it is, which is why we adore these simple twisted boo cuffs designed by Rainbow Warrior.

12. Woven boot cuffs


What if you’re actually hoping to take your cabling skills to the next level? In that case, we think perhaps this adorable pattern that uses cable techniques in different spots and directions in order to create a sort of woven effect might be a little more up your alley! See how it’s done thanks to Misty Frost.

13. Intertwined Cable boot cuffs


Just in case you’re looking for a cabling technique that’s a little more traditional or classic looking, here’s a boot cuff that includes the kind of technique you might see in old cable knit aran weight sweaters like the kind you’d imagine people wearing in the highlands! Get the full details for making a set of your own on AL Frances Textiles.

14. Wynkoop boot cuffs


Cables are all well and good, but what if you’d rather pair them with something else, just to really make a piece that draws the eye and impresses people outright? In that case, we think you’ll really appreciate the way this cabled boot cuff pattern from Interweave also features a fringing technique that hangs down over the boot in a stylish, delicate twist.

15. Malia boot cuffs


Sometimes, when it comest to creating detail, the beauty is in the simplest of stitches. Here’s another design for your consideration that’s perfect for near-beginners who are ready to try something new without overwhelming themselves, creating something beautiful in surprisingly few simple steps. Take a better look at how it happens on Yarn + Chai.
