This fun and flirty pattern features a picot cuff, simple lace pattern, and picot cast off, and is finished with optional pretty buttons. It uses only 50 grams of yarn and is ideal for showing off your favourite fingering weight yarns, or your best luxury yarns. The pattern can be easily adapted to fit your hands and to suit your own individual tastes – ribbed cuffs and cast offs may be used in place of picot cuffs and cast off.
