Virtual Class: Milet Mitts with Ute



This class is designed to introduce you to stranded colorwork.  You will be knitting mittens with foldover cuffs featuring stitch patterns inspired by colorwork traditions from Norway, Estonia and Latvia. Ribbing is worked on the inside of the cuffs for a snug fit that will keep cold winds, or snow, out. The thumbs are worked using the method traditionally found on Selbu mittens from Norway, a relatively small gusset is worked and similar numbers of stitches are put on hold and cast on to bridge the gap before continuing the hand. The tops are completed with rounded shaping in a star or snowflake design inspired by the tops of Fair Isle tams. The repetitive lice stitch pattern used for the majority of the mittens is easy to keep track of without paying attention to the chart.
