Granny Boot Cuffs - Make your Mum something fabulous this Mother's Day, Mini Mother's Day Series Part 1

Hello friends.  I wanted to design something quick and easy, that would make a great Mother's Day gift and after making a pair of boot cuffs as part of a weekly CAL on Ravelry, I thought I would have a go at designing my own.  You all know how I love a granny square and putting the two together, I came up with these super cute Granny Boot Cuffs.  Then it occured to me, "why have only one Mother's Day gift idea?", so instead we will be having a mini series of patterns coming out over the next few weeks, so make sure you are subscribed and don't miss out on any posts.

As always an ad free pdf version of this pattern is available in my online stores, thank you for helping to support my work...

    1. Thank you, I have wanted to try out the Batik yarn for some time...

  2. So prettily made. If you added two more granny squares, they would make great fingerless mitts as well!

    1. You read my mind Sandra, the mitts pattern will follow...
