It’s all about the braid. These cuffs are a workshop in stranded color knitting and braids. Three types of braids are featured: Latvian herringbone braids, half braids that resemble chain links, and half braids that resemble twisted rope. They are knit in the round, from the bottom up. DPNs, magic loop, two circulars: knitter’s choice. Choose three colors and get knitting!
The pattern calls for less than 60 yards of each of three colors.
Instructions are written, with a video tutorial on the knitted braid technique.
The pattern is available as a pdf download through Ravelry. The Ravelry pattern page is here.
Once you know how to knit the braids, you can adapt these to your heart’s delight. Go Ducks!
