This is a mini-ebook with 10 different cuff patterns, all using 10 yards of yarn and 2 buttons.
The cuffs are meant to be either a fun way to use up leftover stash yarn, or a learning tool for new knitters, teaching lots of techniques on a small scale.
Call them wrist warmers, bracelets, wristbands, or whatever else you like, knit cuffs are a great way to use up small amounts of yarn, try out a new technique, show off some vintage buttons, or feel productive with a quick project while watching a show. Wear them like jewelry to spice up your outfit and add a pop of knit!
Each pattern starts out by letting you know which techniques it uses; knitting a small project is a fabulous way to try out a technique for the first time, so don't think you need to be familiar with anything before starting a cuff! If you can make a garter stitch scarf, and have access to internet tutorials and videos to help you along visually, you should be able to knit every cuff in here and feel like an expert by the end! There are written explanations of every technique used throughout the ebook.
approximately 4.5 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch, but gauge isn't terribly important for these cuffs because they are so small, and because the patterns are written to custom fit your wrist (either working the pattern until it fits, or placing the buttons to fit).
