Each project can be knit up in a few days. Both hat and mitts feature a band of corrugated ribbing within the main colour ribbing that looks with its two colours just like a woven in ribbon. The heart colourwork spreads all over the mitts and hat, covering everything with love!
Herzchen is the German diminutive for heart which is also used for very lovely persons. These fingerless mittens and hat set shows that the wearer is such a lovely person. Their cute heart shaped colourwork stands for love and friendship.

I learned knitting, crochet and sewing from my mum when I was young. I kept on going from there and soon invented my own projects. From making up my own patterns to writing them down and grading them it was only a small step. And here we are. :)
