PATTERN DETAILS

Bring some celestial beauty into your life with these unique and fun mittens. The Galileo mittens are worked in a mirrored, non-repeating stranded colourwork pattern on the hand that is reminicient of Renaissance astronomy charts and inspired by the stars. Striped cuffs and thumbs, as well as a diamond palm pattern, provide a visual geometric contrast. A close fit keeps your hands toasty while you contemplate the heavens. Siz Women's M (L) Size L contains 5 extra rounds for additional length in the mitten hand. Size can be further altered by changing the gauge and needle size. For a larger mitten, use needles one size larger. For a smaller mitten, use needles one or two sizes smaller.
