Free Knitted Cuff Pattern

Cuffs and wrist warmers are in style right now, so I decided to design and knit a few pairs.

This yarn is wool and acrylic made in Spain. It has verigations of wines and browns, with nubbies of orange, purple, and green. It's hard to believe that this pair came from the same yarn and dye lot!


Here's a pair from a verigated yarn made in Italy. It's wool and acrylic and reminds me of the colors of a mountain lake.

This yarn is Merino wool and very soft and warm. There is a crocheted purple edging and matching decorative button. These totally remind me of Marie Antoinette!

Free pattern:

Needles: (4) size 10 double pointed needles
Yarn: Worsted or chunky yarn - it's up to you
Cast on 8 stitches on each of the 3 needles = 24 stitches total
Knit 24 to 26 rows - or to whatever length you prefer
(Note: You can knit other stitches like the moss or seed stitch or add a cable, etc.)
When you reach desired length, bind off loosely
Decorative top:
Crochet 2 rows. (I crocheted one row of single, then one row of double crochet.)
Add embellishments - buttons or beads
You are done!

If you are not a knitter and would like to purchase a pair, please visit my Etsy Shop - http://pafiberartist.etsy.com
Au Revoir!

Do you have to use three needles or could you knit in the loop?
