They say that if you keep your pulse points warm, you’ll stay warm all over. These tweedy cuffs prove that theory nicely. And you can turn the ‘cozy quotient’ up or down for outdoors or in. Pick a colorwork chart, an edging, then finish as little cuffs, fingerless gloves or full mittens. Add color choice to the mix and the possibilities are infinite!
