Baby Boa & Cuff

This is a project you can do in an evening and still be able to go out afterwards to show off your work.

Baby Boa & Cuff

What you need

#10.5 knitting needles
Less than 1 skein of Starry night in color of choice
.24" silk ribbon in color of choice (purchased at local craft store)


Starry Night is a furry yarn with sparkle. What girl wouldn’t want to feel sexy and fabulous at the same time? I think you’ll be surprised how warm these little guys can be as well. It’s like wearing a scarf without any excess to deal with. I think that means these are practical to boot. Make some for your grandma and see what she thinks.

It’s a little hard to tell since you can’t see the stitches. 10 stitches is about 2.25″ on #10.5 needles

Stitches used:

Garter Stitch

Pattern written for choker with directions for wrist cuffs in parenthesis ().

Row 3: K

Repeat Row 3 for 11″ (5.5″)

Repeat row 2

BO and weave in ends


Cut a couple feet of ribbon and lace through YO holes at either end of choker and wrist cuffs. Trim as needed. I found that I did not need to tie and untie cuffs since I could fit it, fastened, over my hand, but the choker needs to be laced and unlaced to be put on, so keep that in mind when trimming ends.
