In the wonderfully creepy 2009 animated film Coraline, a young girl gets the help of a black cat to battle long-tailed jumping mice and win a button-ended key that will get her back home. I decided that the cat, mouse and key would make great visual statements in knitting, and would look good even if people didn’t recognize the movie reference.
These colourwork charts are meant to be used in conjunction with my Generic Mittens Knit Flat pattern to create a great pair of Coraline mittens. Since that pattern is personalized, no particular yarn, needles or gauge are specified. (However, some guidelines are given in this pattern for those who want them.)
