Rugged Slopes Boot Cuffs

The Rugged Slopes Boot Cuffs crochet pattern uses a stitch I fell in love with a couple of years ago, the Sedge Stitch.

As a crochet designer I try to incorporate new crochet stitches in my newer designs.  But, I recently saw the Sedge Stitch and remembered I used it in a couple of my previous designs.  I used the Sedge Stitch in my Messy Bun and Beanie crochet pattern and my Rugged Slopes Cowl crochet pattern.  

The Sedge Stitch is an easy stitch to do because all it consists of is a single crochet and 2 double crochet all in the same stitch.

Inside this post you will find a free crochet pattern for my Rugged Slopes Boot Cuffs for 9″ wide by 4″ in height.

You can find the premium crochet patterns for my Rugged Slopes Boot Cuffs, Rugged Slopes Messy Bun and Beanie; and Rugged Slopes Cowl at my Ravelry Store.

Inside the Rugged Slopes Boot Cuffs premium crochet pattern, there are 5 different sizes to choose from based on the width of your calf and the height you prefer to do.

There are also step-by-step picture tutorials to help you figure out your width and how the other steps you may need to crochet your boot cuffs.
