I bought the yarn I used for these thinking I would make the diamonds mitts with it. However the diamond pattern did not work with this yarn because the stitches did not hold their shape. Yet, the yarn felt so good in my hands, I just had to make some mitts with it. The yarn has a little shine to it so it seemed dressy to me. Thus, the beaded evening mitt was born. As with all my patterns you can exchange the yarn just make sure you have the proper gauge. But if you use the same yarn, you will ﬁnd it heavenly on your hands.
For this pattern I used circular needles(24” 0r longer) and the magic loop method. There are directions for both that and double pointed needles.
