Cuffs Always Too Big?

x_poplar_x 12/14/2020 05:52 am 211

Hewwo! I’m new to making kandi, and encountered an issue while making cuffs! I’m extremely skinny naturally, and everytime I follow a cuff pattern, it’s way too big on me. I’d like to be able to wear them without them looking stupidly big, can I safely remove some beads from the pattern for them to fit? I don’t wanna ruin the design :

for x base cuffs as long as you keep the base pattern the same (1, 2 , 1) you should be fine to make it fit your arm! with the cuffs that are too big you can try sliding them all the way up to your forearm or using them as leg garters depending on the size

For multi-stitch cuffs, you can remove columns as long as you remove an even number. Here’s an article about how to do it: https://kandipatterns.com/kandi-help/kandifaq/111-do-all-of-your-cuffs-have-to-be-34-i-have-a-small-wrist-and-was-wondering-how-you-would-modify-it-to-be-smaller-

You can also remove any number of rows. But of course, it depends on the pattern. Not all patterns have blank space that can be removed, so not all patterns can be easily sized down

if you don't want to change the size of the cuff or mess up the pattern, you can always try and layer sleeves or fishnets to make them a bit more snug, but if it gets too hot out you can def slide them up or just change pattern size!
