Lobster Claw Mittens

At our hotel in Halifax I spotted these mittens and was intrigued by them. I would stop at the display case everytime I passed and study them to try to figure out how they were made and why they looked like they do. At our first chance I tracked down the shop (luckily, it was just around the corner from our hotel) and went in to inquire. They are lobster claw mittens-just made to resemble lobsters, not the utilitarian mittens I found in a Google search which have a separate finger for the ring finger. I still want to figure out how they are made-if someone knows a source for a pattern, please let me know!

very late comment, but I found you while searching for the same thing. Morehouse farms has a kit for $14 - pattern and merino yarn. If you google Lobster Claw mitten knit pattern, they are first. Don't know if you still need this, but I saw no comments...

Did you ever find the lobster claw pattern? My 7 yr. old grandson is a NUT about lobsters, and would love for me to knit these mittens.

I'd love to know if you managed to find a pattern as well. I'm planning on going to a convention in a Doctor Zoidberg costume and it would be awesome to have these too!!
