It´s very popular in Sweden to knit cuffs and wear as wristlets, very warm and cosy. I bought alpacka from Drops last week and used pearls tone on tone from Stof and Stil that I already had in my stash. I got the pattern from a woman at my knitting group and like the result very much, will string the pearls for the next one today. It´s knitted on sticks 2,5. I bought Vivaldi yarn in a dark forest green for a sweather too. Only 2 balls for the entire sweather on needles no 9!
