  • The Caribou Snow mittens both complement the hat and add to your Fair Isle skills. Knit along with Donna as you create the ribbed cuff and begin the motif of the hand, then learn how to increase stitches to accommodate the thumb gore.
  • Once you've mastered the basic brioche stitch, add slanted increases and decreases to create a delightful faux cable on fingerless mitts. Learn to use the smooth and flexible Italian tubular cast-on to put stitches on your double-pointed needles, then knit up to the thumb gusset, where you'll also start your wavy pattern. Mercedes shows you how to read the simple chart for this pattern, or you can follow the written instructions that are included.
  • Begin knitting your mitten with Angela's guidance, reviewing pattern sizes and some common abbreviations. Cast on and knit the stretchy ribbed cuff using a smaller needle size for a snug fit. Then switch to larger needles for the hand section and learn a "make one" increase.
We'll walk you through managing two colors at a time with stranded knitting and show you how to hold the yarn to suit your knitting style.
