This pattern is only available as part of the Goddess Collection.

Keep your hands warm and your look stylish with these attention-grabbing cuffs! The cable trim is worked flat, then stitches are picked up along one side to work the rest of the hand, resulting in a one-piece project with minimal finishing. These cuffs are a perfect canvas to express yourself by personalizing the length, yarn colors, and the closures on the trim. Whatever your personal style is like, this pattern will guide you to a truly unique pair of cuffs that you’ll want to have with you wherever you go.
