Susan B. Anderson is coming to String Theory!
Pull together 150-200 yards of worsted weight yarn to make a pair of beautiful color work fingerless mitts in class. We will work on the corrugated rib, the Latvian braid and the two-handed color work technique during class.
Susan provides lots of large and small group demonstrations and individual attention during class. Students are walked through skills and everyone succeeds.
Students are provided the recipe for the mitts but you get to create your own version. Lots of options and charts and examples will be shared in class to help you pick and choose your own mitt adventure! You will leave a much more confident colorwork knitter.
Class will be held at Shawn Sargent Design Studios, 501 Pennsylvania Ave in Glen Ellyn. Just a block from String Theory.
Gather the required materials, check your gauge and come to class ready to create and have fun!
Size: small (medium, large) to fit a 6 (7, 8) inch hand circumference measured at the knuckles
Gauge: 5 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch
Yarn: 150-200 yards of worsted weight yarn is more than enough to complete a pair in any size, at least 2 contrasting colors or more! Blue Sky Woolstok is ideal for this project because it comes in 50g skeins allowing you to introduce several colors without breaking the bank.
Suggested needles: US 7/4.5mm double-pointed needles or another technique for working in the round on a small number of stitches
Ruler or tape measure
Stitch markers (one detachable for the beginning of the round, one marker to go on the needle for the thumb gusset stitches)
