Chunky Yarn Knit Cuffs

These cuffs are jiffy quick and they make great gifts!

SIZE: One Size
About 6 1/2 in. (16.5 cm) circumference. Cuff will stretch to fit a range of sizes.

• 640-106 Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Yarn: Sky Blue 1 Ball
• Lion Brand Knitting Needles- Size 13 [9mm]
• Large-Eye Blunt Needles (Set of 6)

About 9 stitches = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter stitch (knit every row). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

CUFF (make 2)
Cast on 15 stitches.
Work in Garter stitch (knit every stitch on every row) until piece measures about 8 1/2 in. (22 cm) from beginning.
Bind off, leaving a long yarn tail.

Fold knit piece in half. Thread yarn tail into blunt needle. Sew sides of Cuff together for about 2 in. (5 cm). Leave next 1 in. (2.5 cm) unsewn for thumb opening, then seam remainder of sides.
