Make a luxurious tree ornament for your Christmas tree! It’s made of luscious mink fiber and glass beads resembling lustrous pearls. It is quick to knit and not too difficult, being all stockinette.

You will need 150 6/0 Miyuki glass seed beads. I chose beads that are a soft, shiny white, the yarn is Red Barn Yarn’s “Mink”. It is so soft and creamy! The color I chose is Mauve Mist. You can make several ornaments out of one ball of Mink.

FYI: No minks are harmed to make this yarn; the little minks are brushed to gather the fur!
