The leaf motif on these hand cuffs provides a change in knitting and looks decorative. This guide will explain how to master the sophisticated pattern. The stripes of fluffy wool complete the soft cuffs.

The season for gloves has not come yet, but the autumn wind pulls unpleasantly cold into the jacket "> Material and preparation

You will need a ball of fluffy and regular yarn to knit the gauntlets according to this guide. Make sure that the wool is easy to wash. Also, check to make sure it feels soft to the touch so that the cuffs on the delicate underside of the arms do not scratch. For a pair of gauntlets made of high quality yarn you should budget 15-20 EUR.

We worked with four needle size for this tutorial. Knit a stitch before starting with the cuffs. This will ensure that the size of the gauntlets complies with the instructions. Knit 21 stitches with the yarn of your choice and knit 32 rows on the right. This should result in a square ten centimeters in edge length. Use a different needle size if the dimensions differ significantly.

This guide assumes that you can knit right and left stitches. In addition, you should master the handling of a needle game with five needles, because the hand cuffs are knit in rounds. Other needed techniques are explained in the manual.

You need this for a pair of hand cuffs:

  • 50 g of soft wool
  • 50 g of fleece wool
  • 1 double pointed needles (5 needles)
  • 1 auxiliary needle (pigtail needle)
  • 1 big safety pin
  • 1 darning needle

Tip: There are special braid pins to buy. However, you can also use a normal knitting needle in the same thickness as the needle play as an auxiliary needle.

Instructions - knit hand cuffs

Stop and cuffs

This guide starts with the right cuff. Beat 40 stitches in your regular (non-fluffy) yarn. Spread it on four needles (ten stitches per needle). Close the round and knit one stitch on the right and one on the left for twelve rounds. This gives your hand cuffs an elastic cuff.

Tip: Be sure to tighten the first stitches on each needle to avoid holes in the cuffs.

stripe pattern

Now knit over 26 rounds only right stitches. You work alternately two rounds with fluffy wool and four rounds with normal yarn.

Tip: You do not have to cut the thread to change the color. Just let the unused yarn hang down. At the end of each round, wrap the two threads around each other and pull tight.

Knit leaf pattern

Divide the stitches on your needle play as follows:

  • 1st needle: 10 stitches
  • 2nd needle: 7 stitches
  • 3rd needle: 7 stitches
  • 4. Needle: 16 stitches

Using the first 13 stitches of the fourth needle, work the leaf motif according to the following instructions. The rest of the round you knit on the right.

1st round: knit all the stitches left

2 - 7th round: 6 stitches on the left, 1 stitch on the right, 6 stitches on the left
From now on, stitches are crossed so that two more grow out on both sides of the middle stem. You will need an extra needle on which you can slip a stitch without knitting it. Then you work the next stitch. Only then the stitch on the needle comes to the series.

The stems on the left and right are finished.

Envelopes now take more stitches to form the first two sheets. Meanwhile, the middle stalk continues to grow up on your hand cuffs. To work an envelope, place the thread over the right needle from the front to the back. The red mark on the picture shows you how the yarn must lie. In the next round, knit the envelope like a normal stitch.

The first leaves on your gauntlets are half finished. Now reduce the number of stitches by pulling or knitting them together. For a cover, slip a stitch from the left to the right needle without knitting. Then work a right-hand stitch and pull the off-hook as if off-chain. Knitting two stitches together means that you are going to cut in two stitches at once and knit them off like one.

Insert the five stitches that you reassembled when creating the opening for the thumb.

Also, add the seven disused stitches from the safety pin. These twelve stitches are spread over four needles (three per needle). Knit four rounds in the cuff pattern before removing the piece and sewing the thread. The first of your hand warmers is ready!
