Mittens are not only a key winter wardrobe item, and a great gift, but they're also a terrific way to learn some new knitting skills. This class takes knitters through a mini "training" mitten – a classic cuff-up mitt with gusset thumb – so that they can learn everything they need about making mitts in a short amount of time, and then gets them started on a pair of full size mittens. We’ll also talk about how to make fingerless versions, and other style and fit customizations.
Skill Level: advanced beginner - knitters need to be proficient with knit, purl; experience with knitting in the round is helpful but not mandatory
