Late Bloomer Mitten Class
Please join us in this class to make the Late Bloomer Mittens with pattern designer Kristin Ledgett!
Since its publication in Making Magazine in 2020 we have been so pleased to see all the love that this mitten pattern has garnered. This is a very special mitten pattern that employs several textile crafts; knitting, embroidery, and sewing, and Kristin will walk you through them all in this 3-part class. These lessons will include:
- selecting materials and combining colours for the Late Bloomer Mittens
- an introduction to charted pattern reading for knitters
- basic mitten construction - including that finicky thumb!
- embroidery on a knitted mitten
- drafting a sewing pattern for a mitten liner
- sewing and attaching mitten liners to finish your mittens.
3 session course, class fee includes some materials
Materials: Fee includes the polar fleece for lining your mittens, and paper for drafting your mitten liner pattern, other materials not included. You will need:
two skeins Lichen and Lace Rustic Heather and one skein Lichen and Lace Marsh Mohair (or one ball Knitting for Olive Soft Silk Mohair or Walk Suri Fluff) available at The Knit Cafe.
3.5mm and 4mm double pointed or long circular needles for magic loop.
50 grams DK or worsted weight scarp yarn (should be smooth in texture and not too dark in colour) available at The Knit Cafe.
Also bring some sewing yarn and needles. The colour does not matter too much as it will not show on the outside of the mitten.
