NOTE: This program has a rescheduled date (originally November 4, 2017).
Learn the skills you need to make mittens and gloves, just in time for the holidays. Knitters learn knitting in the round; increases; using markers, such as holders and counters; and how to knit thumbs and fingers. Various knitting techniques for decoration and design are discussed. Students make a small mitten for a child or as an ornament during the workshop.
Students should have basic knitting skills, including casting on, creating the knit stitch and purl stitch, and binding off. Please bring a set of size 8 double-point needles and at least one skein of worsted weight yarn.
