Faux Cable Boot Cuffs Free Knit Pattern

 

Some knitters are nervous about learning how to cable, but with this pattern you can skip all of the fuss. This pattern is easy and does not require any cable knowledge or extra tools. Simple knit and purl is all you need to know and the pattern does the rest! I love this look as it gives you the look of cables, but without all the fuss! Plus, this bulky weight yarn works up so quickly and makes the perfect true boot cuff.
