Lace crochet cuffs


There isn't any accessory that I adore as much as cuffs. Whatever the material and the method they are made of - they make a lovely accessory and a great detail.
Peeking under shirt sleeves or worn as bracelets they always make me feel feminine and in a romantic mood.


I crocheted these in a lovely shade of baby pink cotton and used a pattern I made up myself.
If you are interested in making some yourselves here are ones you can knit, or if you don't knit or crochet, well you can always make ones out of old socks ;)
Have a nice day!

I'm all with you on this one Maya! Cuffs are so elegant, no matter which material is used; reminds me of the Victorian era. Love these new ones you made, that baby pink is beautiful! BTW, here's a link that you might be interested in:

It is in Dutch and there are patterns, too, in case you would like to make these! Have a great evening, Ira

These are beautiful. Just perfect. What size thread and hook did you use? Its been a long time since I crocheted with thread. I think I should dig some out and try these.

They are lovely, Maya -- and those fashioned from socks are very unique. Hope your day is great. Tammy

Love them Maya, well done. The sock version is fantastic too, I just love taking one thing and turning it into another, so satisfying and yours look so effective.

So lovely Maya!! The baby pink cotton is perfect and the bouquet you are holding is so delicate. I am going to try a sewn version using some crochet lace I have on hand.

I actually never thought of wearing crochet cuffs underneath a long sleeve shirt, just peeking out. Great idea!

I like that idea of wearing them under shirt sleeves! how feminine!

PS: I just noticed you changed your banner... I must say I really loke it and am quite touched ;-) (I hope you didn't change it weeeeeks ago, I'd be very shameful).

Your cuffs are so soft and feminine in this sweet pink, Maya.
