Step by step, Michelle will walk you through the creation of a very basic, chunky weight fingerless mitt (one mitt of pair, both alike). This is perfect for the knitter wanting to make their first mittens, done in the round and with a simplified thumb gusset.

Techniques covered

You will learn how to:

  • work in rounds with 4 double point needles, starting with casting on and getting needles joined without twisting
  • follow basic pattern instructions
  • cast off in rib pattern and easy modifications.
Skill prerequisites

Students must be able to:

  • cast on
  • knit/purl in stocking st and 2×2 rib
  • check and correct tension gauge
  • keep row count
  • knit with average speed

Please bring the following with you to class:

  • 50g ball of yarn, approx 70-80 m in a chunky weight  (smooth and light coloured preferred)
  • a set of 4 double point needles size 5mm/US 8 (or size required to achieve correct tension)
  • 1 stitch marker or safety pin
  • printed pattern (download the free pattern PDF yourself before class)
