Stretchy Boot Cuffs topped with Scallops

Even with all the boot cuff patterns available, I couldn't find what I wanted so I designed something myself .

Here is the pattern:

sizes in brackets [1,2,3,4] - youth small, youth large, adult small, adult large
Ch 11
Row 1 - sc in second chain from hook, sc in each stitch. Turn. (10 sc st)
Row 2 - ch 1, sc in blo (back loops only) of each sc from previous row except the last sc should be through both front and back loops. Count to make sure you did not miss the first or last stitch which can be hidden sometimes. Turn. (10 sc st)
Repeat row 2 [30, 36, 42, 48] times, or the number of rows necessary to stretch around your leg at the point where the top of your boot comes to, but keep in mind you need a number divisible by 6 for the scallops at the top to come out evenly.
Now place the ends together and slip stitch through back loops only of the end rows. Turn the cuff inside out and decide which side you prefer. (10 sl st)

Row 1 - ch 1 and sc in the end of each row going around the cuff and sl st into the first sc. Do not turn. You should have [32,36,40,44] sc st
Row 2 - ch 3 (counts as dc) and 2 more dc in same st, *sk 2 and 3 dc in third st* repeat from * to * until end of row. You will have [10,11,12,13] 3dc sets, also known as granny stitches
Row 3 - ch 3 and 2 dc in same space. *sk 3 and 3dc in the next space* repeat from * to * until you reach the end of the row.
Row 4 - repeat row 3
Row 5 - scallops - ch 1, *sk 3, 5 dc in next space, sk 3, sc in next space* repeat from * to * around and finish off. You should have [5,6,7,8] scallops
