Carolyn Chen’s GBFAF Zoom class:  Knit a shawl cuff !


Create a knitted bracelet or shawl cuff.  This little project is loaded with technique, designed to teach increases, decreases, i-cord cast on, i-cord edging, and buttonholes.  

A cuff is a great way to practice knitting techniques, bust the yarn stash, use up little bits of beloved handspun or to create a usable swatch. 


Skill Level: Beginner with some experience. 

Must know how to cast on, knit and purl.  
Note: This class does NOT teach novices how to knit.  If you can knit a straight piece, this teaches next level skill blocks.

Light colored Worsted or DK yarn, at least 30 yards.
Knitting needles
     Can be two straight needles 9“ length, or one circular (16” or 29” long).

 - the appropriate size for the yarn weight (Worsted: U.S. sizes 5,6 or 7;  DK: U.S. sizes 3 ,4 or 5 ).        
      Helpful Hint: For visibility: needles and yarn should NOT be the same color.
Cable needle, or a paper clip
Decorative button, recommended diameter 5/8” to 1”
Sewing thread, sewing needle, tapestry needle
Small piece of elastic or backing fabric (at least ½” square)
