Laura Chau Galileo Mittens PDF

Bring some celestial beauty into your life with these unique and fun mittens. The Galileo Mittens by Laura Chau 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. Recommended for intermediate knitters.

Size: 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.

This pattern is a downloadable PDF file.
