A very simple Knitted Cuff pattern this week. (The crochet version can be found HERE. )
These cuffs are knit with bulky yarn on 6mm needles and are a great pattern for learning to work short rows. Pattern includes the ‘wrap and turn’ technique to eliminate the holes.
On 6mm size needles, 16st to 10cm. Using garter stitch.
- Kk – knit
- w&t – warp and turn
- S1 – slip 1
- Sts – stitches
- Short rows are worked using a ‘wrap and turn’ technique.
- Bring the yarn forward, slip the next stitch from the left needle to the right needle. Move the yarn back, slip the stitch back onto the left needle, trapping the working yarn between that stitch and the second stitch on the left hand needle.
- ‘Wrap & turn’ is used to prevent a hole, when knitting short rows.
- Each of my cuffs weighed 26 gm.
Cast on 38 sts
