Product description

Inspired by old-growth forests and hinterland thickets, the Grove mittens feature intricate twisted stitches to create a visually engaging relief pattern. Knit stitches are worked through the back loops to create sculptural texture, while twists create mirrored spirals on the cuffs. The wandering vines on the hand do not require cabling, but are instead shaped by carefully-placed yarn overs and decreases. Knit a pair in Arbor to let the stitches sing proudly, or in Shelter for a subdued effect that mimics moss-covered brambles.

  • Pattern Updates

    22 July 2013:

    (Version 3): Instructions for marker placement on Round 49 for BOTH the left and right mitten have been added as follows: Round 49: Work in pattern as directed until end of round, remove marker, slip 1 stitch purlwise with yarn in back from L to R needle, replace marker. This indicates new beginning of round.

    This errata pertains to the pattern published in “Quick Knits”, 37 Fabulous Patterns for Wraps, Socks, hats and more — ONLY.  Two abbreviations should read correctly as follows:

    • LT: (left twist): Slip 1 stitch to Cable Needle and hold in front. Purl 1 from L needle. Knit 1 through-the-back-loop from Cable Needle.

    • RT: (right twist): Slip 1 stitch to Cable Needle and hold in back. Knit 1 through-the-back-loop from L needle. Purl 1 from Cable Needle.



    18 December 2013: (Version 4):

    Page 3, under Left Thumb: “Rounds 15 & 16″ have been corrected to read “Rounds 14 & 15.”


    2 April 2018: Version 5.1

    A missing YO was added to Row 7 of the Grove Chart for the Right and Left mitten chart. Also, the Legend was updated with instructions for how to work the S1K2P chart symbol.
