Fino Mittones EP2730 Review by Brigitte Brown

Being a novice, I was terrified when I decided to make these for my daughter as a gift. But as I got started and after a few mishaps, I managed to get the rythme and things flowed from there. A positively stunning pattern, I made it in burgandy with both transparent and burgany beads. I am planning another set in black with black beads. Do not apprehend making these, as the pattern is easily read and is too lovely to miss out on. Thank you.
