If the Sun Could Crochet – Free Boot Topper Pattern

I think if the sun could crochet, it would make something bright and warm and delicious and definitely yellow!

Maybe something like these crocheted yellow boot toppers!

I made these for my wonderful niece, Diana.

Yarn: 2 skeins of my bulky wt wool in color, Sunshine.

I bundled these up in burlap and tied with some of the yarn remnants instead of using wrapping paper:

Due to the “lumpy bumpy” nature of the yarn, the edges turn out uneven, which I think is super cool! Perfect is so annoying. 😀

So to make these little beauties for yourself, or your daughter, or niece or granddaughter, just follow these instructions!

Crochet Hook: US Size K

Ch 21. Turn.

Row 1: Sk 1 ch and sc in each ch across. Turn.  – 20 sc

Row 2: Ch 1. Sc in each st across, going only into the back loop of each st. Turn.  – 20 sc

Repeat Row 2 until the topper wraps comfortably around your calf (I worked a total of 26 rows).

Close up the topper, forming a tube, by slip stitching the final row to the first row all the way across. You do this by holding the final row up next to the first row, and slip stitching in each set of stitches across. 

This makes any boring boot supah cute and stylin’!

I hope you enjoy!  Let me know your thoughts!


Have you ever made boot toppers?

    these look great. i would knit them. they would look great, too. everyone needs some colors that promise spring, esp. now.

    another thought. i’ve been knitting my socks in indian corn, & i love the look. i can imagine this in 4ply, worsted(pardon me, these are old descriptions) knitted up in a vest. if you do that, i need to know. i will knit one!!!

    i use a similar pattern, but instead of single crochet I do a double crochet, still going into the back loop only. It just makes the ribbed pattern a little wider. 🙂
