Yankee Design Pattern for 2 Needle Mittens

New July Class -
Every year we hear more than one person comment “I wish I knew how to knit mittens”. Well here is your chance. “Let’s Make Mittens I” is the first of a series of mitten workshops that will be offered at Yarns With A Twist this summer and continue into fall and winter.

The first workshop is just the basics. You will make one pair of simple mittens using either the Yankee Design pattern (knitted on two straight needles) or Ann Norling's Basic Mittens on 4 Needles. Either pattern gives you the option of size and we are recommending that you use a worsted weight yarn.
This is not a learn to knit class, but a class for those who already know the basics (knit, purl, increase, decrease) and are ready to move forward.

 Future “Let’s Make Mittens” Workshops will include reading charts and graphs, cables, stranding and, even brioche. Of course knitting a hat to match, or compliment, your mittens is a must. “Let’s Make Hats” workshops will also be offered.

This is a 2 part class. 1st class will cover cast on, ribbing and thumb gusset. 2nd class will cover the thumb, hand, bind off and pick up for thumb.

Please purchase your supplies prior to class day (pattern, yarn, needles etc) so we are ready to go on the first day. Suggested yarn – Andes-- Needle size as per gauge. (Sample mittens are 5 sts = 1 inch (worsted) but using size 5 needles).

Level: Intermediate - know the basics and ready to move forward.
Date: Part 1: Saturday, July 23rd
Time: 9:30 to 11:30
Date: Part 2: Saturday, July 30th
Time: 9:30 to 11:30
