Simple Knit Cuff Knitting Pattern

Designed by Jenn Wisbeck - Midnightsky Fibers

Simple Knit Cuff Knitting Pattern

An interesting shaped knit wristcuff with an arrowhead design, increases and decreases. Make it longer and/or wider for a coffee cup cozy!

Size:
5.5 inches long, 2.5 inches wide. This is a fairly small wrist size (I have tiny wrists!)

Materials:
20 yards aran weight handspun or another interesting yarn
Size 8 US (5 mm) needles
Tapestry needle
1 inch button
Needle and thread to secure button

Gauge:
4 sts=1 inch in pattern

Notes:
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!
