Learn to Knit Mitts
with Heddi Craft
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!
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)
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.
Marsh & Mallow KAL
with Sara Jessen
Sara has been dying to make the Marsh top and with the warm Indian summers we get here, August is the perfect month to make this. This is a KAL or Knit A-Long not a structured class. We will meet each Saturday evening for 2 hours and everyone works at their own pace. Sara will help with any questions that come up along the way.
Marsh is a fun and summery top with a lace design on the back made with a DK cotton yarn. Mallow is its long sleeved sister and uses a worsted weight cotton yarn.
Please bring a copy of the pattern with you along with all your knitting materials.
