Introduction to Mitten Making
Learn how to make simple, Scandinavian style mittens using five needles.
Learn how to knit with five double pointed needles, create two coloured folk patterns in the round working from a simple chart and understand how to shape and knit mitten tops and thumbs. During the workshop you will knit a ‘sample’ mitten and will be given a small booklet with patterns for mittens to take away and finish at home.
This workshop would be suitable for anyone comfortable with
basic knitting skills. Please bring along DK knitting yarn in
two contrast colours (preferably wool), a set of five double
pointed needles (about 3.5 or 4.0mm suitable for DK yarn),
a tapestry needle, pencil, paper and scissors.
