Sorry it's been a while, so to make up for my absence I have written up this free boot cuff tutorial. Recently I made a yarn wish on istagram and one of my amazingly lovely insta buds sent me, not one, but 2 skeins of Spectrum Fibre hand dyed chunky merino mix yarn. This stuff is so incredibly soft and squishy, as well as feeling immensely luxury. I had spied this yarn a while back when Frank and Olive posted about it and it definitely lives up to the hype. To encourage those who already like a bit of hand dyed and maybe get a few of those who have yet to explore the world of hand dyed, to give Spectrum Fibre a test drive, I decided to write a pattern using the Spectrum Fibre Confetti Chunky yarn. I hope you like it, it’s quite simple and suitable for improving beginners upwards.
