This pattern can be easily adjustable, as long as you keep the numbers even. This cuff is about 9 inches however it can stretched be up to 13 inches.

This is a hot item this winter and these can be done in few hours while watching TV. Because people have different calf sizes, having good measurements to start will help with a better fit overall.
