Many knitters learned to knit with mittens as a first project. They're packed with useful techniques like learning to use stitch markers, increasing, decreasing, placing stitches on a holder, and understanding gauge. Not to mention knitting a small item in the round. We'll be working from Susan B. Anderson's clear and easy Waiting for Winter Mittens and Fingerless Mitts, pattern (included in tuition.)

Skills Required: Must know how to cast on, knit, purl and bind off and be able to work ribbing independently.

Skills Acquired: Stretchy cast on, knitting in the round, increasing, decreasing, placing stitches on hold, retrieving stitches from holder. 

To fit 6 (7, 8) (9, 10) inch hand circumference at knuckles: S (M, L) (XL, XXL), Medium fits an average woman's hand. The pattern requires 100 yards for the small size, 150 yards for the medium and 200 yards for the large size mittens.

Materials: 

  • Yarn- 100-200 yards worsted weight yarn (depending on your choice of size) for mittens, less for fingerless mitts. Recommended: Universal Deluxe Stripes, Universal Deluxe Worsted Superwash, Universal Deluxe Tweed Superwash, Trendsetter Union, Amano Warmi, Spincycle Dreamstate
  • Needles- US 7 (4.5mm) set of 4 or 5 DPNs (or size to obtain gauge.) As this is a small project, we will begin with the recommended needles and restart with new needles if necessary. 
  • Accessories - Locking stitch markers, scrap yarn (different from your project yarn), darning needle, scissors, tape measure.
