Selbu Mittens with Jeffrey Wall
After a quick look at the history and construction of the Norwegian Selbu mittens, you'll learn the process as you knit a mini-mitten: Knitting a ribbed or lacy cuff, increasing for the thumb gusset, casting on new stitches after the thumb-hole opening, decreasing for the mitten tip, and picking up stitches to work the thumb. We'll also discuss color dominance and how to hold yarn when working with two colors per round.
Note: Students should be comfortable working with DPNs. Magic loop or the 2-circular method for knitting in the round are possible but not recommended for this class.
