Apples for My Teacher
Join the group for pattern testing, KAL’s, giveaways and fun! Made with Love and Science
You may not see the fruit of today's work, but you've seeded a lifetime of knowledge.
In the United States, early American children gave teachers apples because the families whose children attended schools were often responsible for housing and feeding frontier teachers. The tradition lives on today.
The palms feature a lovely repeating checker pattern, and the thumbs have space for the year and 3 initials.

The size of the mittens can be adjusted by using larger or smaller needles to get a different gauge.
You will need yarn in 2 contrasting colors
A tapestry needle
A great big thanks to my pattern testers [Nickiknitz] and [jfmccd]!
