so that I can wear my Brigitta? This was so quick and fun to knit up. I think it took all of a week. I knit the second size (36) and was afraid that it would be too short, so I followed the length directions for the next size up. I didn't want the sleeves to hang down onto my hands either. I followed the directions for the sleeve in my size and then just did the cuff as directed and it was perfect. You want to be sure to bind those cuffs off really loosely so that you get a nice graceful bell.
You can see more photos of my Brigitta on the shop blog.
I like this pattern so much that I'm doing another one in Mirasol Ushya - gorgeous shade of sea glass green. Ooh ooh ooh.
