Pull together 150-200 yards of worsted weight yarn to make a pair of beautiful colorwork fingerless mitts in this class taught by Susan B. Anderson.

Description

Pull together 150-200 yards of worsted weight yarn to make a pair of beautiful color work fingerless mitts in class. We will work on the corrugated rib, the Latvian braid and the two-handed color work technique during class. Susan provides lots of large and small group demonstrations and individual attention during class. Students are walked through skills and everyone succeeds. Students are provided the recipe for the mitts but you get to create your own version. Lots of options and charts and examples will be shared in class to help you pick and choose your own mitt adventure! You will leave a much more confident colorwork knitter.

Skills needed:

Ability to make simple increases and decreases, working in the round on a small number of stitches on either double-pointed needles or magic loop.

Materials:


For mittens sized: small (medium, large) to fit a 6 (7, 8) inch hand circumference measured at the knuckles

  • 150-200 yards of worsted weight yarn is more than enough to complete a pair in any size, at least 2 contrasting colors or more!

  • US#7 (4.5 mm) double-pointed needles or another technique for working in the round on a small number of stitches (Gauge is 5 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch)

  • ruler or tape measure

  • yarn needle

  • stitch markers (one detachable for the beginning of the round, one marker to go on the needle for the thumb gusset stitches)

  • scrap yarn


Homework:

Gather the required materials, check your gauge and come to class ready to create and have fun!
