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! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY cast on knit and purl decrease by purling 2 stitches together increase by doing a yarn over optional - be able to do single crochet bind off GAUGE 12 stitches = 2" on lager needles in pattern SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS to fit an average woman's hand, finished length approximately 6 1/2" long for short version or 8" long for long version and 7" in circumference both long and short included in pattern

I've always made things as long as I can remember. Both my Mom and Dad were"makers", so it just was what you did! The handcrafted item was always respected and expected in my family. 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, bookbinding, calligraphy and beading. It's especially fun to try and combine all of my favorites into one design! I can add sewing to the favorites list again after taking the "Couture Dress" class on Craftsy - I hadn't sewn for myself in a long time because fitting and the way patterns are done frustrated me to no end - the class gave me a whole new way to approach sewing and I'm enjoying it again.
