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 colorwork pattern on the hand that is reminiscent 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. Colorwork pattern is charted only.
