Sweet stitched cherries are a perfect touch to top off these cozy basket weave cuffed mitts

This pattern is for a pair of fingerless mitts, worked in the round with cross stitch details added.

Stitches include working around the posts and experience with working cross stitch into crochet would be helpful, but help is included.
