Pattern Description:

On my way to university in London every day, I always take a minute to admire the majestic Hotel Russell. This massive building is covered with gorgeous intricate stonework. Graceful arches, fluted columns, sculptures of cherubs and coats of arms... Every time I look, I see something new. With the coming of the English winter, I wanted something warm and stylish to keep warm with. These mitts are interesting enough to keep your attention, but work up surprisingly quickly.
