Inspired by the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, this version of the Foundling Mitts (also see the colorwork version) is worked in a DK-weight yarn for a thicker, squishy fabric.

Twisted stitches on a background of reverse stockinette show Foundling as the vines surrounding the single rose Lina transformed into. More twisted stitches are on the cuff, where a curly vine wraps around the wrist and is fastened off with a button closure.
