Saltwater Mittens

Saltwater Mittens

Regular price $80.00 Sale

The mittens of Newfoundland and Canada's Atlantic coast are as beautiful as they are warm.  Designed to withstand the harshest extremes of snow, sleet and cold, when knit from wool these mittens will become fast favourites both to knit and to wear.  Whether you want to make gloves, mittens, or the ever-so-useful trigger finger mittens (good for so much more than just hunting!), this class will help you improve your stranded colourwork and construction skills.  Each student will select a pattern and materials for a pattern from the book Saltwater Mittens and learn the techniques essential to creating their own pair of wearable art perfect for an adventurous Ottawa winter.

Level:  Adventurous intermediate
Skills required:  Stranded colourwork will be taught, as will the techniques specific to the project chosen, but confidence in knitting fundamentals such as casting on, knitting, purling, and working small circumferences in the round (whether with double pointed needles OR magic loop) is essential and will not be taught or reviewed.

Materials required:  This will depend on the mittens chosen.  A copy of the book Saltwater Mitten OR Saltwater Classics is required, and whatever materials required for the pattern chosen (consult the book).  Please ensure that all yarn is wound and ready to knit for class so that instruction can begin promptly.

Wabi Sabi cannot provide you with a photocopy of any pattern from the Saltwater Mittens books due to Copyright Restrictions. Thank you for your understanding.
