Rad Radish fingerless mitts are the perfect accessory for wearing while pottering around the garden, allotment, balcony or even inspecting your seedlings on your windowsills. These mitts, inspired by rad(!) radishes, will help keep your hands warm while leaving your fingers free to tend to your plants or draw, paint, write, or of course knit. An ideal project for using up leftover yarn and for making a quick gift for friends or family (or for yourself!). The adorable colourwork radish pattern will certainly raise a smile!
