Inspired by the delicate leaves and berries of the Huckleberry plant, I wanted to create a mirrored pair of fingerless mittens that would highlight the plant’s features. I selected a meandering cable “vine” and added a few small bobble “berries”. Not a fan of working bobbles? There are only 12 on each mitt!

Both line-by-line written instructions and charts are given for each mitt in this 6-page PDF.
