My grandmother is the inspiration for these feminine, dressy mittens. She loves jewelry and lives in New England, so instead of covering her jewelry all winter, why not wear some jewelry on her mittens? The Donna Mittens are elegant, yet warm and functional. The glass beads sit on top of the work, so they don’t touch the skin and don’t produce any holes for the cold to get into. They’re knit from cuff to tip with an afterthought thumb, and the beads are strung onto the yarn before knitting. This is a quick knit that makes a perfect gift for girly-girls of any age.
