Notions you will need:

  • 3 mm (US size 2½) circular needle, 80 cm/32’’ long, to work the magic loop technique (or size to obtain the desired gauge). If you prefer other needles for working in the round over a small circumference, you will need an extra short cable needle of the same size for the cast-on.
  • 6 seed beads (4 mm beads work well with sport-weight yarn)
  • Fine crochet hook (must fit through the hole of the beads) or dental floss for applying the beads
  • Cable needle (if you need one)
  • Waste yarn, stitch markers, darning needle

The pattern includes information on how to adjust the measurements of the mitts by varying yarn weight and gauge (note that this will influence the yardage required).
