Lace crochet cuffs


Long summer afternoons are not spent in vain. I've been crocheting flowers and scarves and cuffs. Cuffs are one of favourite accessories. They add a bit of drama to clothes, and make the appearance highly feminine and elegant. Especially with a lace pattern like this.These are lovely Cinderella cuffs.


 
I have also been teaching my daughter to crochet. She tried to crochet a simple flower but got bored and frustrated because the hook went the opposite direction of what her brain was dictating and soon gave up. Our lessons always end up like this, but I know that deep in her heart she wants to learn. So we'll keep trying. 

 The cuffs.

They are very pretty but I don't think I could pull them off. No doubt I would get strange looks around here. :/

I tried to teach my cousin to crochet last summer. Let's just say we laughed more than anything else. It didn't quite take with her. I'm sure your daughter will get it in time.

Have a great rest of the week. Tammy

So beautiful! My two older daughters would adore these cuffs.

I tried to show my little guy how to crochet the other day but no go... He got bored or overwhelmed or something. I'll have to wait a little while and try again later like you!
