You can block your work, but since it will be stretching around your wrist and flattening out, blocking isn't really necessary. Weave in the ends, and sew on buttons to fit. Try on the cuff to see where the buttons work best-you may want to overlap the straps onto the body a bit.
Try it on and admire your work! It's an unusual accessory, but a fun way to show off your knit lace! You could adjust the pattern to be more of a wrist warmer by making the body much longer (add more knit rows at the beginning and end) and making the straps shorter.
After you make this project, show off your work to other members!
