Learn to Knit Cuff

Lion Brand® Nature's Choice Organic® Cotton


About 16 stitches = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter stitch (knit every row). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

CUFF (make 2)
Cast on 26 stitches.
Work in Garter stitch (knit every stitch on every row) until piece measures about 8 1/2 in. (21.5 cm) from beginning.
Bind off, leaving a long yarn tail.

Fold knit piece in half. Thread yarn tail into blunt needle. Sew sides of Cuff together for about 2 in. (5 cm). Leave next 1 in. (2.5 cm) unsewn for thumb opening, then seam remainder of sides. Weave yarn ends into inside (wrong side) of Cuff.

Learn to Knit Cuff Reviewed by Joy Wallace on 2011-04-19 *****
I learned that 24 - 26 stitches worked best for the ones I made which I made out of yarn scraps and taught several boys, yes boys in a after school knitting class with a friend. The 16 stitches stated in the pattern was too small even for the childrens hands. I tend to just measure the hands now and go for it! Sorry I don't have any pictures.No way to get them online. It was a great 1st project for the group and very fast for them to make.
