This pattern actually contains 3 different patterns for boot cuffs (or boot toppers - boot buffers - or whatever you call them!)
Knit-Look Cuffs uses a stitch called the "camel stitch" to mimic the knitted stockinette stitch. It may be new to you, but it's not difficult. (Directions and a link to a photo tutorial are included in the pattern.)
Double-Design Cuffs use front-post double and treble crochet stitches to create cables on half the cuff, while the other half is single-crochet ribbing. Wear these cuffs folded over the top of your boots with either side showing for 2 completely different looks for your boots.
Tractor-Tread Cuffs are the simplest and quickest of the 3 designs to make. This design is made using half-double crochet stitches worked in the back loops of the previous row. The resulting rows remind me of tractor treads or some other heavy equipment tracks. Depending on the yarn you use, this design works just as well for fancy dress boots as for your work-horse galoshes.
All 3 designs can be worn folded over the top of your boots, or worn as mini-leggings over or under your boots - lots or variations to try!
Depends on which design you are making

Crocheting is my crafty passion - passed on to me by my grandmother. :-)
