Cold weather hasn’t quite arrived yet, but we’ve reached the point in the summer where the nights have started cooling off, even though the days are still sunny and warm. Even though you might still be enjoying the beach, perhaps it’s time to start thinking about stylish ways to get ready for fall! What are the best ways to prepare? Using your DIY skills, of course!
Knitters have an advantage when it comes to fall weather because they’re used to making cozy things. Lately, one of the most stylish knitted accents you’ll see around is a set of cuffed boot toppers. We’ve picked out 15 of our favourite knitting patterns for boot cuffs that will make you feel stylish and a little extra toasty this winter!
1. The Hurricane boot cuff liner by Knit Grit
These twisted toppers look amazing with high boots because the pattern shows well across your knees and thighs when you wear them high on your legs. If you want to wear them lower, however, they’re also long enough for you to roll down!
2. Cable Waves boot snugs by On Mum’s Needles
Between the intricate cabled pattern, twisting and turning up your leg, and the option to add a cute wooden button, we’re in love with this aptly named cuff. Despite looking quite fancy, it’s a fairly easy pattern and good for learning how to cable.
3. Twivey double boot cuffs by Bimble ‘n’ Mooch
In the fall, we’re big fans of wearing layers, layers, and more layers! These boot cuffs are perfect for you if you feel the same way. They’re attached in one piece but they look like two sets of long socks overlapped. We love this colour combination!
4. Colour Block boot cuffs Alice Humbracht Design
Sometimes simple knitted stripes are a classic that’s just too good to resist. Pick colours you love, or different shades of your favourite colour, and get knitting! These ones are great for folding over the tops of your boots because the different colours will show!
