Seed Stitch Cuff

Hiya!

I came up with a simple new cuff last night while watching America's Got Talent. I had three things in mind as I started this project. I wanted to use this new heather gray yarn I bought on sale. I had some red buttons left from a a sweater I recycled back into yarn. And I wanted to practice the seed stitch. So I came up with the following pattern!

The cool thing about this cuff is that it can be created in just about any color, from solids to variegated, with all sorts of buttons as accent pieces. I especially loved the blood red button against the gray yarn. Also, the seed stitch looks really nice worked in the gray yarn. I hope you enjoy creating and wearing your seed stitch cuffs as much as I did and do.
