Free Pattern: Symmetrical Cuff with Ruffle

I had a rough week last week. Instead of going into details or trying to do a catch-up post, I decided I would just go ahead with this week’s post as planned.

I’ve been going through old patterns that I’ve made in the past. Some I’ve written myself, some I haven’t. This is one that I’ve written. I had found a pattern for a cuff that was meant to be worn under your jacket/coat. It had a ruffle to keep the wind from blowing up your sleeve. But… It was too froo-froo for me. I loved the idea, though, so I decided to see if I could come up with my own.

The result is on Ravelry as a free PDF, but I’m giving it to you here, too.
