Wrought iron gates, windows, screens, and stair railings can be incredibly detailed in examples of California Revival architecture. I wanted to play with the ways ironwork scrolls and twists across vertical ribs in these pieces. Twisted and twisted travelling stitches were the perfect way to translate this to knitting.
These mitts were the first of the Wrought patterns, and their motif the guideline for all the others. I love the curls and curves you can obtain with the traveling stitches.
Notions Required: Yarn needle, waste yarn, 3 stitch markers, cable needle

ERRATA to first printing of book
Row 6, sts 11 & 12 should be a 1/1 LPC.
Row 7, st 25 should be ktbl.
Row 94, sts 41-42 should both be purls.
M-dot missing m1p; m1p is lift the strand btwn & purl into it to create a purl stitch.
5 is said to be m1p, it’s not. The 5 refers to the sts that block represents after separating for the thumb gusset: 1 st from the original count & 4 sts picked up.
See photo for correct legend.
