Estonian Mittens with Aleks Byrd
Saturday 22 February 9:30am – 12:30pm
Discover the beauty of the rich mitten knitting tradition of Estonia. We will knit mini colourwork mittens to get a taste of the techniques, varied design elements and thumb construction of these Baltic knits with a modern twist.
Skill Level: Students should be comfortable knitting in the round and reading from charts.
What do participants need to bring:
- 3.75 mm / US 5 needles for knitting small circumference (double pointed needles or circular needles for magic loop)
- stitch markers
- DK yarn in at least two contrasting colours, approximately 20g of each colour
- waste / scrap yarn
