Rabbit Mittens Stranded Colorwork Help Along


Shake the winter chill & learn how to do stranded colorwork in a fun, relaxed setting.

Join us every Monday, 3/4-3/18 from 6pm-7:30pm for the complimentary “Rabbit Mittens Stranded Colorwork Help Along.”

Part class, part knit along & all fun, the Help Along is our version of a class where we will have plenty of knitting help, but with a relaxed structure so that you can knit at your own pace. We understand everyone has busy schedules, so the Help Along is structured with that in mind. Whether you start a few weeks in or have to miss a week- it is no problem. We will get you started from the beginning or picking up right where you left off.

Every knitter needs a pair of delightfully warm mittens! Perfect for keeping out chilly air, these adorable mittens feature a snug, ribbed cuff, as well as one of the beautiful stranded colorwork designs that Arne & Carlos are known for.

The mittens are knit in the round, beginning with the cuff, in two colors of Rowan Norwegian Wool. The cute rabbits & thumbs are embroidered using duplicate stitch at the end. Arne & Carlos refer to the mittens as looking like they have been “painted with yarn.”

In the Help Along you will learn the following skills:

  • Putting thumb stitches on hold, and picking them up to knit thumb

We recommend purchasing the Rabbit Mitten Kit prior to the help along. The kit includes the following:

**Needles are not included in kit

We look forward to seeing you. There is no sign-up required...just show up ready to knit & have fun!

*Prerequisite: to make the Help Along more enjoyable, it is ideal to already have the following skills: casting-on, knitting & purling.
