Description

Alongside knitwear designer and teacher Sunne Meyer, you’ll learn the basics of stranded colorwork, and progress from beginner to more advanced techniques. Knit a pair of simple yet striking Evergreen Lake mittens as you add a second color with ease and an afterthought thumb in a breeze. Master the two-color cast-on and secure your floats as you create the beautiful and approachable Sawatch mitten complete with a braided trim and gusseted thumb. Work an elegant picot edge as you conquer three-color knitting with the San Isabel mitten, and even find out how to create perfectly matched stripes with jogless jogs. Plus, learn Sunne’s expert tips for fitting your mittens, troubleshooting mistakes, blocking for a professional finish and adding fun embellishments!
