Beaded Diamond Mosaic Fingerless Mittens
Note: Pattern includes instructions for coordinating hat and crew socks, along with the fingerless mittens shown here.
Stitch Instructions: written
Materials: 50(55,60) yards of lighter color yarn; 165(195,235) yards of darker color yarn; 480 size 6/0 (4mm diameter) seed beads - approx 40g; also, needles in size 5(6,7) US / 2.75(4,4.5) mm
Summary: Make these fingerless mittens in two colors of DK weight yarn of your choice and size 6/0 seed beads.
From the pattern descriptions: Although the colorwork might appear involved, the slip-stitch color knitting is simple because you only need to handle one yarn color at a time. The beads give an added depth of color and look of complexity to an otherwise simple beaded knitting technique.
