Learn the special details of Norwegian mitten construction by knitting a mitten in two colors, circularly on double-pointed needles. Learn the Norwegian Purl, work a striped ribbing without the odd color bumps that usually show in ribbing, create seam stitches, the classic Norwegian thumb gusset, work different patterning for the front and palm, and the pointed tip shaping at the end of the mitten. In addition, yarn dominance and three knitting styles for color stranding will be presented (knitting with two yarns in the right hand or left hand, and one yarn in each hand). Designing will be discussed.

It was a great class. It would have been better if the homework was a color work swatch. My gauge in colorwork was so off that I had to rip out my whole mitten in class as it didn’t fit at all past the cuff and I didn’t have larger needles with me. I have since started to re-knit them on size 9 and they will work. But it would have been nice if the description said that color work sometimes needs a much larger needle size
