This pattern is so much fun (and was such a good stress reliever when I needed one) that I wanted to make it easy for everyone to enjoy it. You can get it for free with the purchase of any of my other books or patterns.

Just put Revivify and at least one other
item from my ravelry store in your cart at the same time, hit the ‘use a coupon code’ button, and type in the code DISTRACTION. You’ll see the change in price reflected right away.



Revivify verb
- to give new life or vigor to

I suspect that your life is more tidy and orderly than mine. You would never suffer the series of questionable choices that allow a plumbing emergency, a misunderstanding with the gas company, an out of town trip, and a bout of the sniffles to all happen at precisely the same time.

But I? I am occasionally beset by such a fate. And in those times, I need what I think of as distraction knitting. Something quick (because I want the satisfaction of finishing something), something easy (because the last thing I want is extra frustration), and something lovely (because that’s always a requirement). These little flared cuffs were my latest bout of distraction knitting and they did the job nicely.

The pair used just 100 yards of yarn (though of course you could use more if you wanted them to be longer), and took only a few hours each. That makes them perfect stash busters or gift projects if you’re planning ahead instead of dealing with an imminent emergency like I was! And flared cuffs are pretty much my favorite bit of kitting to actually wear (they’re so cute, and they really do keep my hands warm better than they have any right to). I’m convinced everyone should try a pair.

I suspect you should have this pattern on hand in case you ever find yourself in need of a bit of distraction knitting yourself. It’s written in three sizes and three gauges to fit almost any wrist. And it’s full of helpful bits and pieces (tips on lace charts, how to size your cuff, and how the heck to block something with this shape) that will make sure it’s an easy project. Just on the off chance I’m not the only one who occasionally has their life get complicated for a minute or two!

These are perfect for you if:

  • You need something cute and satisfying and you need it now
  • You’re looking for tiny projects to use up yarn leftovers (this pair took 100 yards of yarn, and I have big hands)
  • Your hands are always cold but you still need your fingers free

They’re not for you if:

  • You don’t like charts (the pattern uses charts)
  • You hate swatching (you need to swatch to check your needle size)
