Here are three styles of beaded hand coverings designed for under-the-cuff wear to give the look of layering. Pretty enough to even wear by themselves!
All three styles have a special elegance with their contoured beaded edging and bead-embellished lace.
The Wrist Warmers feature a slightly frilly look that looks fabulous peaking out from the underneath the cuffs of a blouse or sweater. The beaded pattern leans left on one wrist warmer and right on the other, giving a balanced look to the duo.
The Hand Warmers are styled to cover the back of the hand. This version features a symmetrically mirrored arrangement of the bead-embellished lace on each Warmer. The shaping is done in pattern to conform to the hand.
The Mitts are similar to the Hand Warmers except made longer to cover more of the hand, and incorporate a wider gusset to span the thumb hole. What a flattering alternative to wearing mittens or gloves.
9.5 stitches/inch over Beaded Lace pattern stitch or an equivalent of approximately 8.5 stitches/ inch over stockinette
