A simple trick to making wrist warmers or wrist cuffs, when using a wool sweater, felt it first by washing and drying.  Then, this is so fun, cut the sleeves to size and then decorate each sleeve and you have cuffs!  
I made these soft wrist warmers using a felted merino wool sweater!  Of course the sweater was once beautiful, but washed and dried in high heat, gave new meaning to the sweater and its sleeves, and it will continue to warm people :)
I sewed the wool circles onto the wool cuffs with yellow thread, using a blanket stitch.

Here is craft tip on making wrist warmers or cuffs using a washed wool sweater.  Shrink it (felt it) and then reuse or upcycle the sweater ~ it is fun!
