|Spiral Column Cuff. And the door.|
Okay, so my yarn stash is dwindling and I'm trying to come up with stuff I can make from the scrapple of things I've already made. Or in other words: enter the Spiral Column Cuff, which I made with the leftovers from the Madeira Mesh Cowl. Yay, it's a twofer!
Yarn: Berroco Linsey (64% Cotton, 36% Linen; 114 yards [105 meters]/50 grams); #6556 Shell - less than 1 skein
|Horribly offended by the lace-in-the-front proposition?|
Guess what?!?! You can also put it in the back!!!
Needles: One set of straight needles in size 6, two double-pointed needles (dpns) also in size 6 (for the i-cord, of course!)
Notions: Tapestry needle
Gauge: 21 stitches = 4 inches
Using your straight needles, cast on 32 stitches. We're going to work a few eyelets for the lacing, so let's get started!
