On my way to university in London every day, I always take a minute to admire the majestic Hotel Russell. This massive building is covered with gorgeous intricate stonework. Graceful arches, fluted columns, sculptures of cherubs and coats of arms… Every time I look, I see something new. With the coming of the English winter, I wanted something warm and stylish to keep warm with. These mitts are interesting enough to keep your attention, but work up surprisingly quickly.

There are both fully written and charted instructions, so use whichever you’re more comfortable with.
