**This listing is for a KNITTING PATTERN ONLY. Not a finished pair of mittens, not yarn in any form. Just the pattern to knit a pair for your very own.**
Colourwork mittens inspired by a walk in Willistead park in Windsor, Ontario past the lovely old Art Nouveau ironwork gates. Every motif on these mittens is an painstakingly accurate reproducton of motifs on that gate.
Since this mitten only requires one to use two colours of yarn on every row it is an ideal project for those new to colourwork.
Here are some other things you might like to know about Willistead:
