Item details

**This listing is for a KNITTING PATTERN ONLY -- not a finished pair of mittens. Just the pattern to knit a pair for your very own.**

Mittens based on some of the Art Deco tilework and ironwork motifs found on the Guardian Building (a gorgeous brick skyscraper built in 1928) in Detroit, MI.

Instructions are included in this pattern detailing how to turn these mittens into fingerless gloves.

An alternate Art Deco colourway is also included for those who don’t want to wear an exact replica of the building’s colours on his or her hands.

The pattern is a clear, concise, 5-page .pdf file with large charts and images, which I will send via your PayPal email address as soon as I possibly can.

Size: Women’s Medium (or any hand that is 8” in circumference.)

Gauge: 10 stitches = 1 inch (2.5 cm) in Stockinette st.

Yarn: One ball of Knit Picks’ Palette (231yd / 50g) in each of the following colours:
For mittens (or fingerless mittens) in the Building Colourway: Salsa (Main Colour -- MC,) and the following Contrast Colours (CC): Mist (CA,) Semolina (CB,) Green (CD,) and Cream (CE.) Note – Green has been discontinued. The following substitution may be used: Knit Picks’ Palette in either Clover or Teal (CD) to preserve the original colour scheme.
Alternately, any other fingering yarn in these colours or colours of your choice may be used. A 15” piece of waste yarn of the same weight in a contrasting colour to hold the thumb stitches is also required.

Needles: One set of five (5) double pointed needles in US 0 (2 mm) or size necessary to obtain gauge.

Notions: A stitch marker to mark beginning of round (optional,) and a sewing needle to weave in ends.

Returns & exchanges

As the nature of some of my products are digital, I regret that I am unable to offer refunds on any purchases of these items.

PLEASE read my listings carefully - they are for KNITTING PATTERNS ONLY. If you complete a transaction thinking you are getting a pair of hand knitted mittens for $6 USD you are mistaken. In such a case refunds will not be offered. Caveat emptor.
