This unisex mitt kit has been created by OneHandKnits and Literally Yarn especially for The Yarn Cafe. The design for the motif on the mitts is inspired by the black stag on gold background logo for the Lannister House from the hit series, Game of Thrones. The mitts are knitted flat and seamed. The kit contains the yarn needed to create a pair of mitts in unique colours for the kit and pattern with full colour chart.
The pattern is suitable for a moderately experienced knitter.

I originally bought this kit just because I wanted the pattern, but the yarn that came with it seems to be high quality and both colors are very nice looking. I haven't started the project yet, but I'm looking forward to it.
The one reason that I gave the kit four stars instead of five is that it would have been nice to have the pattern printed on higher quality paper, or at least included in a somewhat rigid envelope so that it wasn't all bent and folded when I got it--I would even be happy with an electronic copy that I could print myself.
One final suggestion that I didn't factor into my star rating, is that I would love if the house mottos were included in the design somehow; I realize that it would be hard to squeeze everything in there, but I would love to see more Game of Thrones-themed patterns, especially ones that include house mottos as well as sigils.
