Arrow Cuffs

Posted on October 6, 2016 by Anna

These little cuffs are worked in the round and are quick to make, so they will make a good project for an empty afternoon or evening. These are brilliant for windy days. They stop draughts coming up your jacket sleeves and they look lovely, layered over the cuffs of a chunky knit jumper.
