Inspired by vines and tree roots, these mittens have an intricate, twisted stitch motif that creates a beautiful relief pattern. Multiple-ply and high-twist yarns will maximize stitch definition and let the stitches sing. Shaping of the vine motif on the hand is done through the use of yarn overs and decreasing. Aside from the spiral cuffs, no cabling occurs in the main portion of the mitten. The cuff motif is mirrored on each hand and involves moving the marker as you work to preserve an unbroken spiral. We hope you enjoy knitting these as much as you will in wearing them!
