The New York City subway system has long been an inspiring place for designers and artists, featuring a wide variety of public arts projects throughout the city. These geometric mittens were inspired by underground ironwork at 34th Street and 8th Avenue. With a traditional construction and a warm, dense fabric, they’re sure to keep your hands nice and warm this winter!

Mittens are worked in the round from bottom up.
