The glow of sunlit autumn leaves inspired these golden cuffs – a quick yet interesting knit, perfect for this restless season.
“Ruska” is the Finnish word for that time of the year when the leaves change colours, while “valo” means light.

Simple knit-and-purl stitches combine with various increase and decrease techniques in a project that’s perfect for an adventurous beginner, or anyone looking for instant gratification. The picot cast-off adds a cute feminine detail.
