Maneisha is the very first design I have created for my Accessory Collection 2011. I wanted to create a collection that is functional and different skill level for all knitters. Maneisha is a fingerless mittens design that combined Eyelet Cable Rib and a texture stitch… I wanted to create a design that is fun for experienced knitters and also fun for beginner who would like to experience working on cable and lace and using magic loop method.Here is the basic information about Maneisha:
