This pattern comes in two varieties: One has scalloped edges (in red) and the other has a straighter finished edge (in white). The base is the same for both.

If you are having trouble finding the horizontal bar, insert your hook behind the front and back loops of a stitch and into the front of your work. The bar should be directly under your hook. Now, go under this bar and push your hook to the back of the work again, yarn over, draw the yarn up and under the bar, and finish your single stitch.
These boot cuffs will be about 5.25” wide when finished but can easily stretch over 6” because of the acrylic yarn used. If you are going to use a different type of yarn, make sure it has enough give to stretch around your leg. You may have to increase the starting chains to make your boot cuffs wider.source: thebattersboxblog.com
