Cable knit boot cuffs ( Written Pattern and Tutorial )

These cable knit boot cuffs are a fun little winter knitting project if you’re short on yarn and time. A cable knit isn’t quite beginner friendly, but it’s a small enough project that you won’t go too crazy by trying it, even if you think it’s just slightly out of your skill range.

There’s a free written knitting pattern here that fits most adult women’s sizes, along with the video tutorial, so that should get you going nicely.

They’re a simple little fashion accessory, but they can add a lot to any winter outfit 🙂 The yarn is an acrylic and alpaca blend that feels amazing. I’ve included all the materials I suggest, but you can use any comparable yarn and needles you prefer. These are affiliate links, but I find affiliates for the products I regularly use and love, not the other way around. Hope you enjoy, thanks for stopping by!
