I have received a free skein of yarn from Summerhill Farm to help write this review and I was, in no way, financially compensated to write a favorable review. All opinions expressed here are my own.
Being a small business owner, I know the importance of supporting small businesses and local shop owners. While browsing Etsy for some hand-dyed yarn, I came across Laura Gesin’s Etsy shop called Summerhill Sheep Farm. Laura has the most beautiful hand-dyed yarn that is made and locally. Summerhill Farm is located on the Jersey Shore (which is really not too far from where I live). Laura hand-dyes the wool yarn made from the Jacob Sheep at Summerhill Farm, as well as yarn from a farm on the North Fork of Long Island and yarn from a rescue sheep farm in Kentucky. This beautiful yarn that I received from Laura came from Long Island. I couldn’t wait to make some beautiful things from this gorgeous yarn. I thought, what better than to make some boot cuffs for the fall! Inspired by my friend Dedri and her cable stitch, I made these Cables and Bobbles Boot Cuffs with the amazing yarn from Summmerhill Farm. Enjoy the pattern!
Cables and Bobbles Boot Cuffs
- 105 yds of Summerhill Sheep Farm worsted weight yarn
- Size I, 5.5mm Crochet Hook (affiliate link)
- Yarn Needle, for weaving ends
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet
ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch
sk – skip
yo – yarn over
BLO – back loop only
Cable stitch – sk next st, dc in each of the next 3 sts. Yo, insert hook into skipped st, yo, pull up a loop to the height of the other dcs, yo, pull through 2 loops, yo again, pull through last 2 loops on hook. This creates the long dc that crosses in front of the other dcs. For full photo instructions, see this tutorial.
Bobble stitch – Yo, insert hook into next st, yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull through 2 loops. *Yo, insert hook into same st, yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull through 2 loops* Repeat * 3 more times. Yo, pull through all 6 loops on hook.

To learn more about Laura and Summerhill Farm, you can find her on social media here and at her Etsy shop here. Laura, who also happens to be a high school teacher and avid knitter, also has a knit club with her students! How cool is that? I wish I had that in my high school. I would’ve definitely signed up! 🙂 I hope you will stop by Laura’s shop and get some of her wonderful hand-dyed yarn and help support this wonderful small business owner!
