Ribbons And Grace "Wristers" Crochet Cuffs
"These wrist cuffs have a Victorian feel that will dress up a variety of outfits! I have been excited to try "wristers" for a while, and have been looking for the perfect opportunity to make a set. Several of you have mentioned wanting a pair of fingerless gloves to go with the Ribbons and Grace Boot cuffs, and Neck warmer, but due to the way the pattern spirals, a straight thumb hole would have been somewhat tricky to pull off. These cuffs solve that problem nicely since they lack a thumb hole, but still cover your hand nicely."
Notes-If these are too short, feel free to add another repeat of round 6. If they are too small, in the opening, go up a hook size; too large, go down a hook size.
-It is possible to add a thumb hole of sorts by putting a stitch at the end about 1" from the edge.
-These cuffs are worked in multiples of 6.
-You must be comfortable with working in the 3rd loop of an hdc. Instructions: Look at the top of the stitch, and locate the sideways “V”, bend the stitch to look at the back, and you should see another “V”. You’ll be working into the back loop of that “V”, this is called the 3rd loop.
