Pattern Description:

Robot invasion! Fill that science fiction hole in your day with a little War of the Worlds-esque scene on your hands. Dramatic orchestral soundtrack optional.

The pattern includes full charts for each mitten. Sizing is determined by gauge and needle size. The 36sts/40 rows = 4" is for the size Small. The Large uses a gauge of 32sts/34 rows = 4".

Notes explain how to easily work the mittens over the solid sections of the robots, the mitten tip, and the thumb in order to keep consistant look and tension.

Annie Watts on

Hi folks! I'm Annie and I have been crafting since before I knew what "crafting" was. I took up knitting in 2002 on a whim when I found a pamphlet in a Michaels store. I've been hooked ever since.

I have been designing my own things for years but only started sharing them just over a year ago. I'm so happy to share all my ideas with everyone else!
