johnny rotten anarchy mittens
These gloves were originally hand knitted by Alabama Whirly from her own pattern whilst listening all the while to her Fidelity old record player. These Union Jack gloves are a homage to The Sex Pistols, Johnny Rotten and God Save the Queen (the record).
The yarn is hand dyed by Skein Queen, Desire, DK / 8 ply (11 wpi) 100% merino, DK weight yarn, dyed in the UK, machine wash on cool cycle
The hand dyed yarn will have variations but we love that for our complete glove anarchy.
This pattern is suitable for intermediate – experienced knitters.
