Pattern Description:

Sometimes all a girl needs is a little something around her neck to feel cozy. The Southern Comfort Neck Cuff is a lovely combination of bulky yarn and lace mohair. This wonderful accessory looks equally beautiful with a t-shirt and jeans or a winter wedding gown. It is simple to make, takes only a few hours, so you can make several in different colors. Make one in white or ivory for a bride to wear on her wedding day. It looks beautiful all in the same color tone, or make it in contrasting colors for a fun, bold look. Adorn it with a sparkly button, a vintage button, a simple mother of pearl button or even a favorite pin in place of the button. The ruffled edging around the buttonhole highlights whatever button you choose.


Using bulky weight yarn and size 10.5 needles in seed stitch pattern: 3 sts and 6 rows per inch

gauge really isn't too important for this item since it isn't a garment. Bulky yarn can vary greatly in thickness, if you find a yarn you would like to use go ahead and use it! A bulky yarn on the thinner side will make a cuff that is a bit more narrow, a bulky yarn on the thicker side will make a cuff that is a bit wider. You can also substitute worsted weight yarn or heavy worsted weight yarn to get a smaller width to make a cuff that would fit a child. You will be knitting your cuff until you get the length you would like so the row gauge isn't overly important.
