Peek A Boo Owl Boot Cuff Crochet Pattern




What day is it? Are you having a difficult time keeping track of the days like I am? I feel like every day just blends into the next. I decided that I need to make myself do my makeup and hair more often to feel like life is more “normal”. I admit that as of right now that is only happening about once a week, but I feel so much better when I do it, so starting today I am going to make an effort to do it more.

The last week has been different for me that usual. Like everyone else I am trying to do my part and make masks for friends, family, essential workers, and everyone in between. I have missed my yarn so much that I just couldn’t wait to get this pattern up and available for you! Yarn is definitely therapy for me so I am going to try and continue to bring you patterns every week to keep your hands and minds busy.

This week Is the Peek a Boo Owl Boot Cuff Pattern in Child size. . These are great for stash busting and you can get started on your Fall Market Prep now while you have the time.


If you would like to have all of the sizes from Toddler through Large Adult I have the PDF for sale in all of my shops for a small fee. You can find them by clicking on the links below.
