Winchester Cathedral, bead and cable mittens

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.
