"Honey mittens are perfect for when the weather is starting to get cool and you need something sweet to knit! These mittens are knit in the round, with a 1x1 ribbed cuff, the palm is in stockinette and the top of the hand in an easy cabled honeycomb pattern. Once the decreases at the top are complete, the remaining stitches are grafted together for a clean finish. The thumb is knit last, in the round.
"Cozy mittens for the winter with only a few ends to weave in!"

I was 4 when my grandmother taught me to knit. I have since enjoyed all sorts of needle work; crochet, cross stitch, needlepoint, quilting. However, my love is knitting and designing seamless and classic garments for children :)
