Recently, I was trolling the web for funky ribbing stitches to finish off my Knucks. When I found the perfect ribbing, I kept noticing a beautiful stitch being displayed in the sidebar. The website had dubbed it the “Wind in the Wheat” stitch.

I loved it so much, I had to make some mitts out of it. And, since I have some unexplainable obsession with all things Finnish, I decided to name them Vehnän Mitts; Vehnän being Finnish for wheat. (Well, really, it means “common wheat”). Vehnän Lapaset is roughly Wheat Mitts, but I thought that may be a bit unwieldy on the tongue.

You can knit these mitts in a weekend and they take less than a skein.
