Join Meg as she teaches you how to knit mittens using Tin Can Knits’ popular pattern, The World’s Simplest Mittens. We’ll be knitting these in the round, using double pointed needles or a long circular for Magic Loop. Once you learn the techniques and Meg’s tips you’ll never have cold hands again. This pattern is adaptable for yarn from chunky to fingering.
- World’s Simplest Mittens pattern by Tin Can Knits (free download on Ravelry or the Tin Can Knits website)
- One skein DK weight yarn. We suggest Keenan DK. Please check your hand measurements against the pattern and make sure you have sufficient yardage for the size you want to make. Worsted weight yarn is also acceptable.
- US3 and US5 DPNs or long circular needles for Magic Loop. If you cannot get gauge with the suggested needles, find the correct size for your knitting.
- Stitch markers, a darning needle and a pencil or highlighter.
- Please come to the first class having knit, washed and blocked a swatch in your yarn of choice, so you know what needle size gives you the correct gauge.
- Read through the pattern and highlight or underline all the numbers and directions pertaining to the size you want to knit.
- Must know how to knit and purl and have some experience knitting in the round.
