Dracaena Cuffs – by Sonja Bargielowska

£5.50

Beginning (and finishing) with a folded hem, these cuffs are worked in the round. They feature gradual colour changes – separated by half Latvian Braids – with a little shaping, so the cuffs will fit snugly around your wrists. The central section is knitted in stranded colourwork for extra snugness and warmth. Dracaena cuffs will keep you toasty, but won’t get in the way of busy fingers. Perfect for wearing with ¾-length sleeves or to keep your hands warm whilst knitting.

32 sts x 38 rows = 10 cm / 4 inch square measured over colourwork in the round.

Note: Even though you are using the same needle size for the colourwork section, it will naturally come out at a smaller gauge, which means they will fit nice and snugly around your wrist.
