Moroshka is the russian word for cloudberry. The word sounds very warm like a children´s name.
The sweet mittens are universally, perfect for outdoor activity and fun to knit. Knit up in an organic yarn, these will keep small hands fashionably warm all through the colder months.
The small contrast stripe on the cuff is stretchy and very comfortably for babies and toddlers. You knit the mittens stranded, with two strands of the same colour. The pattern offers a lot of possibilities to play around with colors and yarn leftovers.
