Simple Knit Cuff with Large Button
An interesting shaped cuff with an arrowhead design, increases and decreases. Make it longer and/or wider for a coffee cup cozy!
Intermediate- increase, decrease
5.5 inches long, 2.5 inches wide. This is a fairly small wrist size (I have tiny wrists!)
20 yards aran weight handspun or another interesting yarn
-Size #8/5mm needles or size to get gauge
-1 inch button
-Needle and thread to secure button
4 stitches per inch in pattern
Make longer by knitting more length before the decreases. To make wider add an extra stitch at beginning and end.
Yarn: for the pattern to show up a fairly smooth yarn is best, thick and thin handspun yarns may not show the pattern very well. Be sure to use a yarn that you can wear next to the skin if you are going to wear this!
