Attention, humans: ROBOMITTS have been spotted in the area. Take cover (or don't!)Perhaps you are already familiar with the ROBOSOCKS? Maybe you'd like to side with the ROBOMITTS? If so, the pattern is waiting for you here, on Ravelry and will shortly be available in my Etsy shop.Here's what you'll need to know:
The 5-page ROBOMITTS .pdf includes addtional instructions for making them as fingerless mittens. The robots just keep going and going...
Size: Women’s Medium (or any hand that is 8” in circumference.)
Gauge: 9 stitches = 1 inch (2.5 cm) in Stockinette st.
Yarn: One ball of Knit Picks’ Palette (231yd / 50g) in each of the following colours: Ash (Main Colour -- MC,) and Raspberry Heather (Contrast Colour – CC.) Alternately, any other fingering yarn in these colours or colours of your choice may be used. A 15” piece of waste yarn of the same weight in a contrasting colour to hold the thumb stitches is also required.

Enjoy the robots! I'm off to go put the finishing touches on the Winter Veggies mitten pattern.
