Needles: U.S. sizes 2-3 and 4 / 3 and 3.5 mm: set of 5 dpn

With smaller dpn, CO 48 sts. Join, being careful not to twist cast-on row. Divide sts evenly over 4 dpn = 12 sts per dpn. Work around in k2, p2 ribbing for 1¼ in / 3 cm.
Change to larger dpn and work around for 24 more rounds, or until work measures 5 in / 13 cm in total. Finish by changing back to smaller dpn and working in k2, p2 ribbing for 1¼ in / 3 cm. BO loosely.
Weave in all ends neatly on WS. Lightly steam press the cuffs under a damp pressing cloth, but do not press ribbing.
