Pattern Description:

Part of the beaded Faberge series, these mittens, in 4 sizes, add a little glamour to your winter!

Inspired by the enameled and jeweled eggs made by Peter Carl Faberg for the Czar and Czarina of Russia between 1885 and 1917, these mittens capture the beauty and intensity of Imperial Russia. This pattern is knit out of worsted weight yarn and uses slightly larger "E" or "5/0" size glass seed beads, which, along with the included photo tutorials, make it a perfect first beaded project for someone wanting to try beaded knitting, while remaining challenging enough for more experienced knitters to enjoy making.

This pattern contains a photo tutorial on beading with a crochet hook, as well as a photo tutorial on the pattern stitch
