Service Description

Level: Ready to take it to the next level! Step into the world of mitten knitting with our engaging in-person class designed to help you create your first pair of cozy mittens. We will introduce you to the fundamental construction techniques for mittens using an easy and manageable yarn gauge (not too chunky, but not lightweight.... just right, really!). Not only will you learn a valuable new skill set, but you'll also have the perfect handmade gifts for your loved ones. Our experienced instructor (NICOLE) will guide you through the process, covering essential techniques such as casting on for mittens, shaping the thumb gusset, and creating a cozy ribbed cuff. You will gain confidence in knitting in the round as you make not just one, but TWO mitts at one time. By the end of the class, you'll have a beautiful pair of mittens ready to keep your hands warm or gift to someone special. Join us for this enjoyable class and embark on a knitting journey that will leave you with both practical skills and heartfelt presents. Supplies - ALL available at FINCH*: Worsted weight yarn in a color of your choice (sufficient quantity for a pair of mittens) 2 sets of Double-pointed knitting needles in appropriate sizes (we'll need one set per mitt) Colored Stitch markers Tapestry needle Mitten pattern (included) Skills covered in class: Casting on and knitting in the round Picking up stitches Shaping the thumb gusset Creating a ribbed cuff *10% discount for all class supplies purchased in store.
