When I think of leafy patterns, my mind goes to Tolkien’s Ents and Entwives. No matter how many times I read those books, I still find it easy to get caught up in that world. Fimbrethil was an Entwife - one of the loveliest.

This is a quick knit with lots of lace to keep your interest but easy enough to follow. Both the top of the mitt and the top of the thumb are simply a couple rounds of purl stitches, but I think they marry nicely with the lace to give the design a clean look.

Finished circumference (blocked): 6.5”
Finished length (blocked): 7”

Note: You can easily adjust length by adding repeat(s) of pattern on the cuff or the top. But, if you are using the suggested yarn, you may need another ball to do so.
