Over The Rainbow Yarn


Mittens are the perfect combination of practical and delightful!  Quick, portable and pretty, you can carry them where ever you go and work on them whenever you have a moment to spare. After you take this class, you’ll never need a pattern again. There are some simple tricks and easy formulas to learn, and you’ll be able to make mittens roll right off your needles. We will create a traditional gusseted mitten in this class, but we will talk about other styles.

In order to cover all of the components of mitten knitting, we will knit a miniature mitten, which you should be able to complete in the course of a two-hour class.

Skills Covered:

  • Mitten Anatomy and Body Proportions
  • Thumb Gusset Shaping


  • Knit
  • Purl
  • Basic Knitting in the Round


  • 1 skein yarn
  • Double-Pointed needles in size matching yarn
  • Tapestry needle
  • Notebook and pencil


  • $25

Please note: Your online registration reserves your spot in the class, but you will have to pay at the register on the day of the class (or earlier).


Bookings are closed for this event.

  1. Hi MI’m,
    I have been enjoying your website from afar. THere is so much energy and Enthusiasm! The bad news is that I am not close enough to pop in and share everything you have to offer. So I have a question. Do you think it would be possible for me to take your mitten class on line.
    I would love to try it- what do you think ?
    Thanks for giving some consideration,
    Lynn Angle ( from the June Riggins cruise)

  2. What is the yarn that was used for the plain mitten on the left? Wish I were close enough to join the workshop.
    I love getting the newsletter and hope to get back to Rockland thus fall.
    Best, Linda
