Design Your Own Fingerless Mitss

We have the privilege of hosting some classes from a Rock Star knitter, Wendy Bernard. The soonest one is

Up Down All Around
Design Your Own Fingerless Mitts

One Session-Sunday, February 15, 12 to 3 pm; $60, supplies not included. Skill level: Sheep. Instructor: Wendy Bernard

With "Up, Down, All-Around Stitch Dictionary," you can choose any stitch pattern and reproduce it flat, top-down, bottom-up and in the round. This class will give you the perfect opportunity to try your hand at incorporating stitch patterns into a pair of arm warmers or fingerless mitts. Wendy will walk you through a "from scratch" pattern to create a one-of-a-kind accessory that bears your own creative fingerprint. You can choose from virtually any stitch pattern in the book! Included with this pattern is a formula for arm warmers and fingerless mitts so you can continue to make unique accessories of your own.

Fingerless mitt are a great gift and a great way use up odd balls of yarn. 

Here are some other samples from Wendy -

Happy Needling,
