This simple and stylish set features garter stitch edgings and a fun stockinette and garter ridge pattern, broken up by columns of twisted stitches. The texture, columns of ribbing, and twisted stitches mimic the foliage of members of the genus Polemonium.

This fun and fast set can both be worked up from just one skein of Miss Babs Caroline. The fingerless mitts incorporate an afterthought thumb.
