Boot Cuff Tutorial

I hope all of you are enjoying your wonderful families and friends especially this week, it being Thanksgiving week. I wanted to share this tutorial with you because it is getting closer to Christmas and this is the fastest handmade gift you will ever make. While everyone else is shopping at the large department stores on black Friday, you can be making these in the comfort of your home, in front of a warm fire. (eating chocolate cookies and sipping on Hot Coco). 
On Pinterest, I've noticed the hottest fashion trend is boots! Boots are everywhere!!! And with boots, there are accessories. I adore accessories! Being a child of the 80's leg warmers seemed like the perfect fit. I am not alone, I loved leg warmers! Ok, I said it and I have been waiting very patiently for them to come back in style. Guess What? They have!!!
This boot cuff tutorial will show you how to make short boot cuffs but you can make them as long as you like. :) 
Materials:
5" Loom (for sizes Kid Medium- Adult Medium) It stretches to accept most sizes. 
6"-7" Loom for larger sizes
Yarn
Steps:
The video will take you through the steps on creating the boot cuff including how to cast off of the loom. 
Extras:
You could add ribbon, lace or other trims to personalize your boot cuffs.

Have fun and stay extra warm with these boot cuffs.

Do you have suggestions on how to end the cast off to not be so tight? I can't get them over my calf...
