These photos don't do justice to these lovely mitts. The yarn is a much deeper, richer red. I took several photos but couldn't seem to capture the color. The pattern is Easy Elegance Mitts by Jackie Erickson-Schweitzer. I altered it and added the thumb gusset and thumb. The original pattern only has a thumb slit. I bought a supply kit from HeartStrings which included red Mohair/Wool yarn (Heirloom Aristocrat 12 ply) with garnet glass beads.
This photos is an attempt to show the beads in the cuff area.
