Starlight Beaded Lace Hand Warmers - Spin A Yarn, Devon
The Starlight fingerless mitts feature a beaded lace pattern and are worked in the round.
In the morning we'll practice the techniques used to knit these mitts including how to knit lace, how to read a lace chart, how to add beads using the crochet hook method and how to knit in the round on double pointed needles and circular needles using the magic loop method.
In the afternoon you will start your own Starlight mitts. You will need 1 skein of 100gr/400m sock yarn (4ply/fingering weight yarn), 2.75 mm double pointed needles or 2.75mm 80cm long circular needle, 160/192 (depending on which size you choose) size 6/0 seed beads and 0.75mm crochet hook. Pattern will be provided.
All materials for the morning will be supplied but please bring materials as above for the afternoon project (this can be purchased in the shop, using your discount, on day of workshop if preferred).
