Free Crochet Pattern - Key Tab Boot Cuffs

Introducing the Key Tab Boot Cuffs. This is the 3rd pattern in a series following the Key Tab Slouchy and the Key Tab Fingerless gloves. There will be one more pattern to complete this fabulous set! 
I don't know why I love this stitch so much but I do. I hope you do too! 
These have all be fun to design. 

Boot cuffs had to grow on me. I didn't really think I'd care for them. Most my boots aren't meant for boot cuffs but I forgot my hubby bought me these awesome Coach boots last year and they are perfect for cuffs! Now I want them in ever color. These work up fast and the stitch has a lacy look to it, so not to much bulk, but some extra warmth. A great way to add a pop of color to your outfit. 

These are written to fit me and I don't have skinny legs so you may need to adjust the pattern to fit bigger or smaller. The ribbing pattern just needs to be worked in multiples of 4, or you could simply adjust up or down a hook size.

Hi I was wondering if you need to increase the size of the cuff how many stitches do you need to add? I'm usually pretty good at following a pattern but I'm terrible at figuring stuff like that! Thanks love these so much
