Ice Queen Beaded Cuff
Description from the Patternfish.com pattern page (http://www.patternfish.com/patterns/4638):
“What better way to ward off the chill of winter than with a pair of knitted cuffs?” asks Matthews. “These cuffs feature a beaded motif inspired by ice crystals. A quick knit, they can be easily modified in length and circumference to fit a variety of wrist sizes.” Knitted widthwise in garter stitch (you can see the grain of the ridges), this is a splendid design just right for the season, and beautiful to wear or give. Matthews writes an extremely clear pattern, and you get both written-out and charted instructions. If you use the provisional cast on and a three-needle bind-off, there’s no sewing at all. Gauge given is over garter stitch.
Length: 3.5 inches / 9 cm; Circumference: 6.5 inches / 16.5 cm (unstretched)
Circumference can be adjusted to fit a larger or smaller wrist, you will need to add or eliminate an even number of rows on either side of the chart motif. Note that you may need additional yarn if adding rows.
Starting February 6 and continuing until February 24 - a day after closing ceremonies - I will donate 50% of each sale of any of my patterns to http://egale.ca/ , an organization that does good work on behalf of LGBTQ people. I was inspired to do this by my friend Lynne Sosnowski (etcgirl here on Rav), who has written beautifully of her beliefs. I hope Lynne’s thoughts will inspire others to support not only the athletes, but everyone who works hard to be faster, to fly higher, to be stronger, no matter what their endeavor, no matter who they are, no matter who they love.
