I am glad to offer these cuffs in my Etsy shop for those who can't knit or are not able to make one. But I also know that such a gift is even more meaningful when made with the giver's own hands! It is for that reason I am offering this simple, basic pattern.
The original idea was to be a gift for cancer patients, but the concept could be adapted for people in many different kinds of difficult situations. Each material used has a special signifigance, and comes with a card explaining each one.
Materials you will need: cotton yarn; size 6 double pointed knitting needles; small amounts of ribbon, lace, fuzzy yarn, and rickrack; a heart of some sort, whether a charm, bead or applique; sewing thread and needle.
Skills needed: knitting and purling on double pointed needles; basic sewing and crafting skills for attaching embellishments
