Class Description: Make a Mitt with a fancy looking honey comb design. Up your knitting game by twisting right or left leaning cables with or without a cable needle, making a thumb, and choosing the right bind off. Keep your hands warm and fingers free as everybody cranks up the air conditioning.
I don’t recommend this to be your first mitt nor your first cable project.
