I am sorry, but I forgot ... and they were a present for a disabled boy and are out of my reach now, so I could not count them now. The needle size was 2,5mm. The cuff is knit double, ie knit up to the height you want the cuff to be, purl one row and then knit the same height again. Once the part before the purl round and the one after the purl round are of the same height, make one round by knitting one stitch of the cast-on round and one stitch on the needles together. The cuff is then finished and you do not have to sew it together afterwards. As to the number of stitches needed, I take it, it's best if you do a gauge swatch and take the number of stitches needed .
