Arched Fans Boot Cuff
This Arched Fans Boot Cuff is created with sock weight yarn giving your finished boot cuff a thin fabric for comfortable wear. The edging gives the illusion of fans in the air and arched. While the fabric is a thin fabric, the herringbone stitch gives it a nice and subtle texture without adding too much bulk.

- Ch1 does not equal a stitch.
- Place your first st in the same sp as your ch1 in the beginning of ea round.
- Try to match gauge as close as possible since this is a sized piece.
- Keep an eye on your count for stitches throughout the piece. It’s easy to miss a stitch, especially in the Hhdc section.
