Loopy Cuff

On. It was a little big, so it fell onto my hand. I adjusted it and now sits higher.

Tracy's comment about a similar project using needlefelting set off a lightbulb. Sorry if I stole your technique! I wetfelted two strips of wool, sewed the top row of plooming to the felt strip,

added a buttonhole and button, and it worked. One down, one to go.

The strip of felt makes the cuff snuggly warm on the wrist. It isn't exactly something I would wear out doing chores, but I think the colors go well with my brown suede going to town winter coat.

I could also see attaching it directly to a mitten or glove cuff, whether it be knit, felted, Polar fleece, hand made or purchased.

I could also see plooming a lighter, maybe silk blend yarn, and then attaching it to a length of satin or velvet ribbon, using magnetic bracelet clasps for the closure. Actually, I could imagine doing that with this yarn too, maybe using a crushed velvet ribbon in a nice wine color?

That looks really nice. It can double as a wrist warmer.
