Icy Trellis Free Boot Cuff Pattern
When I find a pattern with texture, I know my day is going to brighten up! I absolutely love creating patterns with texture also. The design for these boot cuffs certainly brightened an otherwise dreary day! Recently, we lost power during a winter storm and were stuck at the in-laws. The day was overcast and icy as I sat down to play with some stitches. The resulting combination of shells and post stitches remind me of a trellis, a bright image in the mist of the icy day. I hope this pattern brings a bright spot to your day and that you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

For additional sts, yarn over and insert hook in chain made, yarn over and draw through one loop on hook (This makes the “chain” and you still have 3 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through all 3 loops.

Front post double crochet – yarn over, insert hook from the front to back to front around the post of stitch from previous row, yarn over and pull through, yarn over and pull through 2 loops, yarn over and pull through 2 remaining loops
- All joins are made with a sl st around the post for front post rounds and into bginning chain for other rounds.
