Here's my preliminary frilly neo-Victorian cuff, all pinned out and blocking.

frillycuff 001

It's pretty big -- a little smaller than a dinner plate. The frill on it is a full circle with a picot bind off. It's knit from the cuff down in an eyelet rib on small needles, and then for the frill, I switched to larger needles so the fabric would be drapier.

These are intended to be worn under a jacket or bodice with long fitted sleeves. They keep your hands and wrists warm, and give some frilliness to what can be a severe silhouette. They're good for early autumn or when spring is still cold.

So, what does everyone think?
