Pattern Description:

These mitts are feminine without being fussy and are a great introduction to adding beads to knitting. They're an easy project without an overwhelming amount of beads. The mitts are just as cute if you decide not to add the beading.

Mitts are knit flat starting at the fingeredge to the cuff, then seamed up the side leaving a thumbhole with optional crochet edging.

The beads {if you're using them - pattern can be made without} need to be strung 1st. There are complete instructions on how to do this in the pattern.
My patterns are written in a non-traditional way to be very beginner-friendly. I use few, if any, abbreviations and give instructions in a row-by-row format in easy-to-read large type with a color picture of the finished project.

Kits are available for this project - just add needles!

Mom taught me how to knit, which was a challenge, as she was left-handed and I'm right-handed!

Knitting is the one art and craft that I always return to through the years.

My other favorites are marbling, ...
