This pattern is so pretty and the instructions are clear and simple to follow. The star of the pattern is the cuff and band - it is so inventive and lovely. It’s a serious game changer - I can’t see why I would go back to making cuffs and/or bands with straight front-loop stitches. Thank you so much for this (new to me) technique.
