In honor of being selfish once in awhile, I made a stash-buster project for myself earlier this week.

Purpuras Cabled Wristlets

These wristlets are made from some really luxurious yarn and I adore the colorway. I was also inspired by Sam to make something with cables, since it’s been quite some time since I had done.

The pattern originally called for five cables total, but I added an extra so they’d be just a wee bit longer. I made the small size, which is just about perfect for me. I would cast on a few extra stitches the next time, or use a slightly (but not a whole lot) looser cast-on. My bind-off is always on the loose side, so that was just fine. The pattern has separate instructions for each side (cables in one direction for the left, and in the other direction for the right) but I forgot and made two identical cuffs. I didn’t care enough to frog the one cable I’d already completed when I realized it, though, and I’m fine with them being the same.

Look at that beautiful color pattern! This yarn, it’s just gorgeous.

This last photo comes closest to capturing this really beautiful colorway.
