These mitts have a unique construction Four honeycomb cables become finger holes, and when you put your fingers through you get the classic brass knuckles - though it's much safer when it's done in wool. Then, stitches are picked up all around the 4 sides of the rectangular strip, and the mitt is knit in the round down to the wrist. At the sides the honeycomb pattern is continued, so it runs seamlessly from the outer wrist edge, up the outside of the hand, over the hand (with the fingers poking through), and down the inside of the hand. The open cable is worked again to make the thumb hole. This is worked in DK weight yarn to make the women's size, and worsted weight to make the men's size. Same directions, different sizes.

She has been knitting since she was 5, and couldn't imagine life without needles in hand. Past projects bring memories of life events back to her as vividly as certain scents do for others. Right now she tries to fit knitting and designing around looking after her two preschool daughters - secretly hoping that soon they'll be able to do the sample knitting for her!
