I love boot cuffs! They are the perfect accessory during the cold winter months! I have not knit any yet, but I look forward to trying several different patterns. This is definitely one close to the top of my list! I do think I will pick different colors though. I am not a big fan of the colors shown here.

This pattern has a dividing row, does that mean you start and stop at a different stitch? If so you will not be able to knit in the round but continue in SS and knit/purl back and forth? I have never had this type of pattern before, please advise. Thank you
