Mittens
Get started as Tanis goes over the materials you'll need for your project. Then prepare your chart and discover the best way to cast on for circular knitting and get into the meat of the pattern.
Start working the thumb as you explore the afterthought thumb technique (and how it's different from a gusset). This is a simple technique that won't break up or conflict with your colorwork pattern. After that, learn how to bind off purlwise.
Finally, complete your mitts by weaving in the ends and wet blocking. These small details are important and will help elevate your finished project.
The Latvian braid is a spectacular technique that adds visual interest with a 3D effect. Look at some examples, then see how to incorporate them into your colorwork.
Dive into Fair Isle as you explore the English, Continental and combination styles. Tanis explains the difference between "Fair Isle" and "colorwork,” shows how to avoid twisting your yarn, and shares her favorite way to trap floats.
Bust your yarn stash and knit a pair of Fair Isle fingerless mitts! Knitwear designer Tanis Gray shows you how, without shaping, step by step. You'll learn to work key techniques including afterthought thumb, Latvian braid, double-pointed knitting and more.

This just in: you no longer have to wear your heart on your sleeve. In fact, we recommend carrying it around in your hands. These simple knit mitts get a bit of Valentine's Day love with super-cute stitched embellishments.

As sure as the leaves will change, when temperatures drop, knitters gonna knit. Get right to it with easy, cute projects that are all about instant gratification. (P.S. These are so giftable, and the holidays are right around the corner. Just saying.)
Once I started knitting socks using magic loop, there was no stopping me! I started using magic loop for practically everything in the round, including mittens.

Crochet fingerless mitts are one of my favorite accessories. They're quick to make, really useful and they can showcase a small amount of lovely yarn.
