Gauntlet Cuff Casting On and Working

This is an old-fashioned cuff that creates a unique mitten or glove. Consider applying a color or stitch pattern.

1 Using smaller needles, loosely CO sts for your size and gauge, according to Table 3.

2 Place marker (pm) and join rnd, taking care not to twist sts.

5 Rep rnds 1-4, sl marker beg every rnd; until cuff measures approx 2V2 (3, 3V2, 4, 4V2) inches from CO edge, ending with rnd 2, 3, or 4.

6 Next rnd: *K1, k2tog; rep from * to end of rnd. You will have the number of sts rem indicated for your size and gauge in Table 4.

7 Next 5-10 rnds: *K1, pi; rep from * to end of rnd.

Note: You can work this ribbed section as long as you want, but at least I inch is recommended. For an even tighter fit, you can work this section on needles two sizes smaller than the needles used for the rest of the project.
