This is a challenging mitten design that depicts the Andromeda Galaxy. You should have experience with colorwork before making these. :)

The Andromeda Galaxy is the most distant thing you can see with the unaided eye. At 2.3 million light-years Andromeda is the closest galaxy to our own Milky Way.

Thanks so much to my stellar testers PamonMars, kaebe and my tech editor offbeatchic.
