1 ball project!

Started in 1896, Paris-Roubaix (Pair-ee Roobay) is one of the
oldest road cycling races still run. The trek leaves riders caked in mud and grit from the cobbled paths and rutted tracks of northern France’s former coal-mining region. The best part? The winner gets to keep a cobblestone as a trophy… but you get a smart set of cuffs and matching cowl inspired by the winding tracks and cobbles of this spring cycling classic.
Even though the event is nicknamed l’Enfer du Nord, or Hell of the North, this knitting project is more like freewheeling!

This pattern is the April installment of the Single Skein Club from Twisted yarn shop in Portland OR.
