Finishing Cuffs

Weave in loose ends and block lightly, if desired, as follows:

Generously spritz the inside and outside of the lace portion with a fine mist. Lay the cuff on the ironing board or a padded surface with the scalloped edges of both layers aligned. Pin cast-off edge to about 7″ (18 cm) wide, then pin out each scallop point, pulling gently downward to extend the points and to expand and even out the lace part. When the scallop points have been pinned, coax the valley between pairs of points upward toward the ribbing to exaggerate the zigzag lower edge, and pin the valleys in place. Allow the upper section of the lace cuff to narrow gradually to the width of the ribbing. Allow to air-dry completely before removing the pins.

    I am so glad I finally found this pattern. When I saw it on Knitty Gritty I had a difficult time writing down the instructions and left out a few things. Now that it is found again I cna’t wait to do these in black.
