Want to knit a sweater but find patterns intimidating? Sometimes knitting feels like a visit to a foreign land where the natives speak another language. Let us be your guide as we walk you through the process of reading patterns and knitting a a swatch for gauge. Along the way, you will learn how to set up your seamless sweater, whether it’s knit from the top down or the bottom up, finishing techniques for a sweater you will be proud to wear, and tips to size a pattern to fit your shape.

Welted Fingerless Gloves in Shibui Baby Alpaca

Welted Fingerless Gloves in Shibui Baby Alpaca

Mittens and fingerless gloves are perfect knitting for the approaching holiday season. They are quick to knit. The choice of yarn makes for a distinctive and unique gift – my personal favorite for teachers. Kiko has chosen two Churchmouse designs for this class – Colorwork Cuffs & Mittens and Welted Fingerless Glove. All students will learn to knit in the round on double pointed needles. Those selecting the Colorwork Cuffs & Mittens pattern will learn to follow a color chart.

Pair this class with Hickory’s early October workshop Knitting in (Small) Circles to practice the techniques covered!
