Do you want to make the warmest mittens possible for someone you love or perhaps for yourself? Well in this class you will learn just how to do this with a little bit of wool yarn and a little bit of wool locks. We will be thrumming which means we will be knitting wool locks into our knitting to form a cozy warm lining in our mittens. We will be making a child’s size mitten so that we can get through all the steps of mitten construction, but you will go home with the pattern to make men and women-sized mittens too. These mittens are knit flat and then seamed. I will share my tricks and tips to secure the locks into the knitting and how to get consistent, neat-looking fiber bumps on the right side of the mitten.
