Knitting First Project: Fingerless Gloves
All materials provided, with your choice of hand-dyed yarn from our selection
Now’s the time to put all your new knitting skills to work! You’ve learned to cast on, knit, purl and bind off, so you know all you need to make these mitts! The pattern incorporates knit stitches, purl stitches, and mixing them together to create a rib pattern for cuffs and top band and a charming seed stitch for the side panel and thumb area..
Techniques Involved: You will be making a 1x1 rib for the cuffs , seed stitch and stockinette stitch . You’ll also learn a very useful seaming technique, the mattress stitch. You will also learn to read a simple knitting pattern.
Materials (included): You will have your choice of our beautiful hand-dyed yarn by Playful Day Yarns, and we’ll help you choose the right size needles from our shop. We’ll be using Judith’s own Fingerless Mitts pattern.
Note: At the moment, group classes are not scheduled. I teach private lessons and small classes (2-3 people) in my private studio …please contact me to make arrangements.
