  To work 5 together, first slip 3 stitches, so it looks like this.

How to work 5 together (reference numberss in photo above): With yarn in front because of the yarn over, sl 3 sts, *pass 2nd st on right-hand needle (#4) over 1st st (#3), sl 1st st (#3) back to left-hand needle, pass 2nd st on left-hand needle (#2) over** slip st #3 from left needle back to right again, repeat from * to ** 1 more time with sts #5 then #1, bring yarn over around to front and purl stitch #3.

k3, p11, k3.
k5, kfb, yo, work 5 together, yo, kfb, k5.
k5, p7, k5.
Knit 2 [6, 10] rows.
Bind off to last 4, k to end.
Work strap row for about 2.5 inches.
k 1 row.
k2tog, yo, ssk.
k 1 row.
k2tog, k1, pass first st over to bind off.

  When you finish, the lace part will pop out because of the garter stitch pulling it together.

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.

  My small-size cuff fits with the buttons on the edges.

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.

  The strappy back looks something like this.
