Winter sniffles turns into down time.

Had a bit of down time and decided to work on a few cuffs to go under blazers or jackets for gifts. I must admit that I love working on them and they are so versatile.
They can make one look like they are wearing a gorgeous sweater and still put a pair of winter gloves or mittens on under them.
I took the base pattern from a bernat free pattern on line and added the ruffle as I would work a doily.
I also love ribbons and glitter so I went down to a worsted weight yarn rather than a bulky yarn.
The pattern also comes with a plain neck ruffle and I hope to play with this one as well. I am sure they will be a hit with the teenagers.
