His Lordship's Steampunk Mitts
His Lordship’s Steampunk mitts are manly fingerless mitts, knit in the round in double knit (8ply) yarn. Brass buttons and a buckle cuff add some fun steampunk finishing. Mitts are knit in one piece, with stitches picked up for the buckle band at the end.
This pattern was originally designed for the Tri’Coterie Steampunk Club and was designed to showcase the hand-dyed colourway “Tinker”. Any 8ply yarn that knits to gauge will work for this pattern - tweedy yarns especially would suit.
In addition to yarn you will need:
2 buckles (or 4 D rings)
8 military style SHANK buttons
100g of DK is recommended - gloves use about 60-70g.
