Learn to Knit Mitts

$40

with Heddi Craft

Calendar Aug 18, 2018 at 10 am, runs for 1 week

In this class we'll learn to knit a pair of mitts with a gusset thumb and a bit of colorwork.  You'll be able to choose between a plain stripe, a slipped stitch pattern, and a simple Fair Isle pattern.  Knit your mitts using double pointed needles or a single long circular and the magic loop technique, whichever you are the most comfortable using.

Once you've knit a pair of mitts, you have all the skills you need to work a simple top down raglan sweater.  Join this class and build your skills!

Materials needed:

Worsted weight yarn in two colors (the sample mitts use various colors of Malabrigo Rios)

US 7 (4.5 mm)  double pointed needles or circular needle between 32" and 40" (81-121 cm)

Stitch markers

Basic knitting supplies (tapestry needle, scissors, etc.)

THIS CLASS HAS HOMEWORK!  Please complete the following:

Knit a gauge swatch in stockinette stitch. Cast on about 15 stitches with the recommended needles and knit about 18 rows.  Your gauge should be 10 sts x 14 rows = 2” (5 cm) in stockinette stitch, blocked.  If you have too few stitches, try a SMALLER needle.  If you have too many stitches, try a LARGER needle.  Gauge is critical to get the desired size, but if you wish to knit the mitts and you are not concerned with the finished size, you may omit this step.

Measure the circumference of your palm below the fingers but above the thumb.  If you palm is between 6" and 7" (15-18 cm), cast on 28 sts.  If you palm is between 7" and 8" (18-20 cm), cast on 32 sts.  If you palm is between 8" and 9" (20-23 cm), cast on 36 sts.  Join to work in the round.

Work a knit two purl two ribbing for 14 rounds and bring the ribbing to class on the needles ready for the next step.

Having trouble with the homework?  Join us for Troubleshooting Tuesdays and we'll help you out or contact Heddi at heddicraftdesigns@thecraftstudio.com.
