"Perianth" a stranded colorwork mitten

  • No upcoming events or classes.

Join Jess to learn stranded colorwork with this lovely mitten pattern.  This small project will pave the way for bigger fair isle endeavors like sweaters.  We'll learn about reading color charts, using different stranding techniques, increasing and decreasing when there are two colors involved, and blocking for lovely finished products.

Prerequisites: Please be very comfortable with knitting in the round; no previous mitten experience is required, but it might help.  Double-points or magic loop technique are both suitable for this class.

Please purchase the pattern here and bring your own copy of the pattern with you.
