Vineshadow Wristlets

Description

These fine, nearly-weightless wristlets in two sizes (S/L) feature a frill of pretty leaf motifs that are highlighted all around in yarnovers, to add a bit of feminine interest at the edge of a sleeve, while shutting out chilly winds. These cuffs make excellent use of yarn left over from larger lace projects and a great matching accessory for the Longshadows scarf or stole.
