Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Easy lace
  • Increase/Decrease

Pattern Description:

This is a set of 3 different cuffs or wrist warmers.

A great look this year is the casual fiber or fabric accessory like these knitted cuffs or wrist warmers (or bracelets). It is a great way to use up small amounts of a special yarn, even hand-spun.
Cavendish is the lacy one. Put it on to accent a tanned wrist, or a pretty ankle.

Lancaster uses a color-changing yarn like Noro Kureyon Worsted to create chevron stripes. Add great vintage buttons for a trendy look. It fastens with buttons and buttonholes, or snap fasteners with the buttons sewn on decoratively. A crocheted loop for the button closure is another option.

Portsmouth uses a color-changing yarn, but it is knit on the diagonal to create slanted stripes. An applied i-cord along the edges provides a neat finish. It's a fun way to show off unique vintage buttons. It fastens with buttons and buttonholes, or snap fasteners with the buttons sewn on decoratively or a crocheted loop.

Each one uses less than 1/4 of a ball, so make several!

About the designer

I have been knitting on and off since my teens, but became somewhat obsessed with it in 2007. I love squishy wools for the short, mild Los Angeles winters, and like cottons and blends for the rest ...
