Finally, finally, I come bearing the Cupcake Mittens pattern! Grab it here on Ravelry (and yes, in the Etsy shop too -- soon.)Cute mittens featuring everyone’s favourite treat – cupcakes! Sweet little cakes (in several different flavours) march across both the back-of-hand and the palm of these charming mittens. A striped thumb adds contrast and interest.I should also mention that (as usual,) instructions are provided for making fingerless Cupcake Mittens as well!
