Knit your own Chocolate Covered Cherries Socks and Fingerless Mitts using these clearly-written instructions by knitwear designer Jackie E-S of HeartStrings FiberArts.
The matching set of anklet socks and fingerless gloves have red "cherry" ribbed legs covered by peek-a-boo beaded "chocolate" honeycomb eyelet turn-down cuffs. The wavy twisted stitch accent on sock heels, foot, and hand of the half-mitts suggest a drizzling of chocolate. A neat treat!
