Sunday 24 February  2 pm – 5 pm

Want to tackle glove knitting, but are intimidated? This class teaches you everything you need to know to work one of the most challenging and fun knitting projects you’ll ever tackle. We’ll talk about ensuring a proper fit. We’ll talk about warmth and good glove fabrics. And we’ll provide easy solutions for the trouble spots: fiddly fingers and tricky thumbs, including what to do about all those holes and ends. Students will leave with a pattern and all the skills they need to make perfectly fitted – and perfectly executed – gloves.
