Designed for ALPINE MEADOW ARTISAN YARNS by Carol H. Rhodes
REQUIRES:These quick-to-knit cuffs are knit in a strip that forms a parallelogram. The short ends are joined invisibly so that you can wear them knit or purl side out.
Materials: 1 skein (50 yards) Alpine Meadow Starlight Sport Weight Sequined yarn.
If your wrist is more than 7 inches around, you may need an extra skein.
Or 1 skein Alpine Meadow Moonbeams Sport Yarn (120 yds.) would make 2 pairs.

Needles: straight needles US size 6 (4.25 mm), tapestry needle.
Gauge: 4 ½ stitches and 6 rows = 1 inch
SSK: slip 2 stitches knit wise, one at a time to right needle, place them back onto left needle (stitches now have left side of stitch on front of needle) without removing right needle, and knit the 2 stitches together through back loops
K2tog: Knit 2 stitches together as one
M1: make 1: Make 1 by picking up strand between stitches; place it on left needle and knit through back loop
INSTRUCTIONS: Cast on 20 sts.
Row 1 (WS): slip 1 purl wise with yarn in front, purl to end of row.
Row 2 (RS): slip 1 knit wise with yarn behind, make 1, knit to last 3 sts, k2 tog, knit 1.
Repeat these 2 rows until piece fits comfortably around your wrist. End with a purl row and then bind off at same tension as for cast-on row. Cut yarn, leaving a 12 inch tail.
Invisibly seam the cast-on and bind-off edges together by sewing into the center of the edge sts. To make sewing easier, separate off the strand of yarn with the sequins on it and work only with the wool strands. Weave in tails on purl side as invisibly as possible.
You can make the second cuff as for the first or reverse the direction of the stitch slant by working row 1 as above and row 2 as follows:
Slip 1 knitwise, ssk, knit to last stitch, make 1, knit 1.
