Latitude Mittens
Sunday, October 18, 2020
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM (EDT)

Sideways stripes of rib, garter, Fair Isle and stockinette stitch give a rich texture to these comfy Mittens. Also the pattern includes provisional cast ons, German short rows, magic loop and easy bind offs. I'll go over all of these in the class. The size is adjustable. You will be using a circular needle but they are knitted flat.

Patterns reading. Useful but not essential to have tried some of the techniques mentioned in the description.
Homework Required?
Check gauge. This is important to get you a good fit. Knit a swatch at least 4" (10cm) square and don't measure right to the edge.
The gauge is 12 sts and 15 1/2 rows to 2" (5cm) square using stockinette stitch (alternate knit and purl rows).
I will provide a pattern by email.
