Elsa - hand cuffs (PDF)

PDF Pattern for the hand gauntlets "Elsa".

The Elsa hand warmers are started with the Italian gauge for 1/1 rib pattern. After the preparation rows, the stitches are rearranged so that the cuffs continue in 2/2 rib pattern. Increases for the thumb wedge ensure an ideal fit.

At the appropriate height, after working the palm, a fold-over edge is worked so that the last centimeters of the cuff can be folded over after the Italian bind-off.

The final thumb worked over the stopped thumbtack stitches is also worked with a fold-over edge and turned over after the bind-off.

  1. Michaela Höhnen -

    Hello dear Maschenfein team, I ordered this knitting kit and already received with pascuali cashmere, by the way beautiful wool. But the pictures look quite different. This is rather fluffy wool and it is knitted larger. On me, size L is tight. Am I doing something wrong? Glg, Michaela

      Dear Michaela, first of all we are happy that you are as fond of Cashmere 6/28 as we are 🙂 And now to your questions: Did you make a stitch test? That's important to determine the right needle size so that your cuffs don't end up too big or too small. Also, because of the rib pattern, the gauntlets will be tighter when knit. After (carefully) washing the cuffs, however, the pattern relaxes and they fit properly. Then the wool also "fluffs up" a bit more and becomes even cozier than it already is. On the subject of washing & tensioning, we have a video in which all the steps are explained using a sweater: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ht963tKcMhM&t=1s&ab_channel=MaschenfeinBerlin
