Crochet Pattern: Regal Cuffs

Fast and easy, simple yet feminine, the Regal Cuffs have a stretchy main body that hugs the wrists (no need to bother with closures) and a shell edging that looks like a royal crown.

Shell Edging: extend 2.5″ from wrist

Medium Weight Yarn (approximately 30 yards for each cuff)

    What exactly do you mean by ‘back ridge of chain’??

  12. Jenny says:

    I moved the hook size down to 3.50 will that work for this pattern? I want this to fit a young child, if that helps 😀

    • Rachel says:

      Jenny, I think it still might be a little too big for a child’s wrist although it depends how large the child’s wrist is. You can sew an elastic band to the inside of the cuff to tighten it if you’d like.

      • Jenny says:

        Thank you! that’s a great idea, i had a feeling it might be still be too big even with the different size hook, so this is a good alternative
