Cat Eared Boot Cuffs

I made these cute cat eared boot cuffs for halloween. I love them! I tried to crochet cat eyes too, but it just didn't work out. So just ears it is!

Gauge 3.5 hdc sts per inch, when working hdc in the round. Pattern written to fit a 13.5-14.5 inch calf. I used a 4mm crochet hook and worsted weight 100% wool yarn.

Using a 4mm crochet hook, chain 41 sts.

R1: Skip the first ch and hdc down the row (40 hdc)
R2: ch 1 and turn. hdc all sts (40 hdc)

Repeat round two until boot cuff measures 5 inches or as long as you want. At end of row, after it's as long as you wish, ch 1 and cut yarn. Sew up the leg warmer.

Ears: Start the first ear anywhere.

R1: ch 1. 1 sc, 3 sc in same st, 3 sc in same st, 1 sc (turn 4 sts into 8 sts)
R2: ch 1 and turn. sc all sts (8 sts)
R3: ch 1 and turn. 1 sc, sc 3 tog, sc 3 tog, 1 sc (turn 8 sts into 4 sts)
R4: ch 1 and turn. sc all sts (4 sts)
R5: ch 1 and turn. sc 2 tog, sc 2 tog (2 sts)
R6: ch 1 and turn. sc 2 tog. ch 1 (1 st)

Now count four sts from the end of this ear. In the 5th st from ear, work next ear (rounds 1-5 again), making sure there are 4 sts between 1st ear and second ear.

Weave in all ends and wear!
