Starry Skies Boot CuffsThese fun boot cuffs use the same stitch pattern as the Starry Skies cowl / scarf. When made with a sparkly yarn like in the original cowl / scarf pattern, the lace design can be very dressy. In the set shown here, I used a fuzzier, self striping yarn, which gives a more casual and fun look.

With ribbing on the bottom and an adjustable button band on the top, these cuffs can fit a wide range of sizes. The stitch pattern works up quickly, and because it is lacy it uses less yarn while still being quite warm. The whole set shown here was made with only 2 skeins! These factors combined make this a great set for gifting.
