These mittens were inspired by the arched stained glass windows of churches and cathedrals. I used elegant cabled archways with a touch of beading inspired by the beautiful lead work to design these cosy mittens.
I designed my Winchester Cathedral mittens for Let’s Knit Magazine earlier in the year. They will add a touch of elegance to your winter wardrobe, I hope you agree?
The mittens are knitted using Rowan Wool Cotton 4ply, which is delightfully warm and soft without being too bulky. The beads are applied as you work with a small crochet hook. New to this method of beading? There is a tutorial with the pattern.
