Let Them Knit Cake is a pattern collection inspired by Marie Antoinette, but made for the modern woman.

Named after court perfumer Jean-Louis Fargeon, the Fargeon Mitts are simple and elegant mitts with a ruffled edging and ribbed body. Make like Marie (who wore perfumed gloves) and store these mitts with an herbal sachet inside to add scent. Quick to knit and comfortable to wear thanks to the thumb gusset, the Fargeon Mitts will add a hit of rococo style to any outfit.
