Mittens featuring a multitude of dried spiky teasel heads, just like the ones placed on each wine-dark leather seated chair in the library at Sir John Soane’s Museum. What a way to deter visitors from sitting down!

A tribute to Sir John Soane - man and museum. The second of a series. The first - the Golden Light Mittens - are here.

Instructions are included in the pattern to produce both mittens and fingerless mitts.

Never knit colourwork before? Since these mittens only use one contrast colour these ones would be a great place to start!
