Peregrine Mitts

Sundays, Oct. 12 & 19, 1-2p

Amazing accessory alert!  Pick out your three favorite colors of toasty warm Harrisville Shetland and join us for this quick class.  The slipped-stitch pattern on these fingerless mitts make them a fun and colorful project.  These mitts are knit flat and seamed, so students will learn the basics of slipped-stitch knitting (also called mosaic knitting), simple colorwork chart reading, mattress stitch, and picking up stitches.
