Learn to Knit Cuff

Lion Brand® Recycled Cotton


About 19 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 33 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 Cynde Fucsko on 2011-01-10 *****
I like this pattern - very easy! Although I shortened mine to 6 1/2" in length vs the 8 1/2". This length worked better for me, although my husband likes his at the 8 1/2" length.

I also added a pattern to mine:
Leaving about a 15” tail to sew with:
Cast on 33 stitches
Knit stitch next 10 rows

Stocking stitch next 4 rows (row 1 – purl, row 2- knit, row 3- purl, row 4-knit)
Knit stitch next 10 rows

Repeat *pattern 3 more times
(You should have 5 total knited rows and 4 total stocking stitch rows.)

Cast off, leaving about a 6” tail to sew with.

Cast On end is bottom of cuff, Cast off is top.

Fold square in half, inside out, with knit rows horizontal, counting from bottom – up:
Sew seams together from bottom to top of 3rd stocking stitched row

Leaving next knitted row and stocking stitched row open for thumb, sew remaining knitted row to top.
