Verdure




ver·dure

  [vur-jer]  
noun
1.
greenness, especially of fresh, flourishing vegetation.
2.
green vegetation, especially grass or herbage.
3.
freshness in general; flourishing condition; vigor.


I felt that the word "verdure" was a great title for this new little botanically inspired pattern.



These mitts feature a fun twisted stitch, sprouting plant motif on the back of the hand. 
It is so fun to watch it grow as you knit!

The pattern calls for only one skein of Madelinetosh Tosh DK. I used the Grove colorway which is such a perfect shade of green.

I have designed these mitts to be included in my upcoming pattern book, Botanical Knits 2. But I am happy to announce that this pattern is available individually for a limited time as part of
Twisted yarn shop's Mad About Tosh Club 2013.

The pattern is available HERE.

Enjoy! :)
