This is a companion to Thither and Yon (the hat and cowl in the pictures at the bottom of this page), and you can buy all three patterns together for a discount. The price for the set is $16.00 (that’s a savings of $8.00 off the price of the individual patterns, like getting one of the patterns free).

If you put all three patterns in your cart together, you’ll see the price reduced to $15.00 (you don’t need a code, it happens automatically).

And don’t worry! If you’ve already bought one of the other pieces, whatever you spent on them will be counted towards the price of the set (as long as you’re logged into the same ravelry account when you make both purchases).




There’s something about knitted leaves. They’re more charming than they have any right to be, and they look impressive but are actually super easy to make. Charming and easy…that’s pretty much what I’m looking for in my knitting! And these mitts totally fit the bill.

The leafy lace runs up your wrist, and splits around your thumb (who says you have to keep all the fancy bits on the back of your cuffs?), and joins back up at the top of your hand. The rest of the cuff, including the gorgeous mirrored thumb, is in lovely crisp ribbing (so it fits great and is easy to work).

The whole thing makes for the sort of mellow, meditative project that’s fun to make and looks absolutely fabulous when you’re done.




The mitt is written in three sizes (castons of 38, 42, and 46 stitches), so there’s an option to fit most anyone. And of course you should feel free to adjust your gauge a bit to fine tune the fit of the mitt. Just be sure that you’re working at a gauge that gives you a fabric you like with your chosen yarn!

I recommend working at something around 5, 6, or 7 stitches per inch, and I’ve included a table to help you figure out what gauge you’ll want to use for your size.

With that range of sizes and gauges, the cuff will fit a wrist between 5.75 and 9.75 inches (with lots of points in between).




These are perfect for you if:

  • You’re as taken with knitted leaves as I am
  • You want a mellow project that looks impressive when you’re done

They’re not for you if:

  • You don’t like charts (the pattern uses charts)
  • You hate swatching (you need to swatch to check your needle size)
