Custom Fit Mittens with Kate Atherley - virtual class
Date: Sunday afternoon October 22
Time: 1:00pm-3:00pm Central Time
Instructor: Kate Atherley
Description: Winter is coming! It’s never too early in the year to prep for the cold weather. We’ll show you how to create a custom mitten – regular or fingerless! - for any hand, and any yarn. Use up your stash and keep your friends and family warm. Along the way we’ll share tips for making hand-mittens as warm and possible – from yarn choice to lining strategies, and help you deal with problem areas like ill-fitting or holey thumbs.
Skill level: intermediate – knitters should ideally have made a pair of mittens or two
Supplies: Have on hand some scrap medium-weight yarn and needles to match for working mittens in the round
Homework: OPTIONAL - make a small swatch in the round of the yarn you want to make mittens with
