knitting series 301: mittens

It's time to make your own pair of mittens! 

In this class you will learn to knit a cozy pair of mittens, this is a quick knit available in both kids and adult sizing. Once you have made a pair in class you will be able to make them for the whole family. This is a great first class to learn how to knit in the round using the magic loop technique, the mitten is knit in the round from cuff to fingertips, with increases for the thumb gusset. The thumb is then knit last. 

This class is for our intermediate knitters who want to learn how to knit in the round. Students need to be confident in the knit, purl and rib stitch. 

Required Materials:
