Shawl/Scarf Cuff - Version 3
Using sterling silver scrap from making my chainmaille jewellery, each shawl/scarf cuff is a unique design based on the wire scrap remnants I piece together. Built like an oversized toggle with a black rubber, slightly stretchy connector, that allows the wearer to use with many different weights of scarves and shawls. This "cuff" design allows you to add it to your favourite knitted/crocheted or woven design without "piercing" the material. You just gather the fibre garment the way you would like it to sit around your neck and put the cuff all around the fibre material and slip the toggle portion through the centre of the cuff's round-ish design.
This design version is using scrap sterling wire from the ends of the wire coils that don't get cut completely from one end to the other. For some of the ring sizes I make, usually the smaller sizes, I clamp the rings and my circular saw can only cut the coil completely down to the last 3-5 rings at the end of each coil. I have kept all those coiled ends and then I arrange them into a circle and fuse/solder them together. Dimensions are: Roundish part is 2.0" at widest point, rubber connector is approximately 4.5" long and stretchable, and toggle is 2.25" long. Shawl/Scarf Cuff is shown on my ZickZack Scarf I knitted with 3 self striping balls of Lang Greta Merino Fine Wool. ZickZack Scarf is a free pattern available on Ravelry.
There is only one Shawl Cuff like this, as each one is uniquely made by me in my Toronto Studio. You will receive this exact piece.
