Right Cross Cable Sample Wrist Cuff

What are you most proud of? Seeing a design possibility in a simple pattern, and not wasting a sample. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep track of the row count so that all the cables are consistent. If you are used to binding off loosely, as for socks, bind off more tightly for a firmer edge.

with Patty Lyons

  • I grabbed some scrap yarn (appears to have some silk content) to practice the new skills learned in this lesson: casting on in pattern and binding off the last stitch without an unsightly ear. Rather than stopping at making a sample
  • I kept on until it was long enough to fit around my wrist
  • and I sewed on a silver slide clasp. I opted not to block the piece so that the rolled edges would look like I-cord framing the cables.
