A Trio of Techniques: Tilda Mittens


These beautiful beaded mittens will add a touch of glam to your winter! Students will learn a 2-layer lined cuff, how to make a thumb gusset, and how to bead your knitting with a crochet hook. Other methods of beading your knitting will be discussed but not demonstrated. Please make sure you get the correct bead sizes for this project--there are several links in the materials list that you can choose from.
