Pattern description from Lace Style: “For centuries, a white lace blouse has been a wardrobe staple, but when that blouse is covered with a jacket, all that shows are the cuffs. With this notion in mind, Vicki Square designed a pair of mohair cuffs that can be worn with any garment. The cuffs are worked in the round from the pointy edge of the lace to the snug rib that fits around the wrist. The lace portion is a simple six-stitch pattern that repeats every two rows. And every other row is knitted plain. Tuck these cuffs under the sleeves of a blazer or dress for a lacy layered look.”
