Meadowsweet is an herb that grows in damp meadows with small flowers and irregular branches. These mitts are a match for the Meadowsweet Beret. I love these mitts because they can be knit with a relatively small amount of yarn. They are stretchy with a snug fit. I have made these with heavy worsted weight handspun yarn which turned out adorable. This is an easy intermediate pattern. I recommend some experience knitting in the round with double pointed needles. The mitts will be half an inch longer than the sample photos.
