Mittens from Space!

I'm testing out a pattern of my own. The theme is Space Invaders. I knitted it with my Red Heart Super Saver and Bernat 100% acrylic yarn. The gauge is a bit bigger than the Lamb's Pride Super Wash. This is just a tester but if and when I do knit a pair of mittens out of these yarns, I'll make a smaller pattern with only 20 stitches instead of 24.

Here's a sampling of what it looks like.

I've also knitted up swatches with the acrylic yarns.

The first one is with Red Heart Super Saver.
