The Design

"Woolly little wristlets."

They say that if you keep your pulse points warm, you’ll stay warm all over. Our Colorwork Cuffs—little woolly wristlets—prove that theory nicely! Pick a colorwork chart (for this version, we created a fun, three-color motif), an edging, and then cast on. If you’d like a little more coverage for your hands, our pattern also includes instructions for fingerless gloves and full mittens!

For the beautiful stranded colorwork, we chose three shades of Brooklyn Tweed Loft. This tweedy, 2-ply, fingering-weight yarn is woolen spun from Targhee-Columbia wool. Bouncy and airy, Loft is a great choice to insulate your pulse points. And its big, heathered color palette means you can have heaps of fun choosing colorways.
