Heart Cuffs - free pattern for my readers

Hello All and Happy Valentine Day!
I hope your day is full of joy, love and warmth!

Celebrate today - but tomorrow get out you needles and make this little present to some special lady in your life: Heart Cuffs


I am releasing this pattern free for my readers. It is cute and quick to make. 

This could be your first knitting with beads project: thick yarn, big beads!
