This lesson has just a tiny bit of stress because you will need to decide what sort of thumb shaping you want to use on your mittens. Don’t worry! I walk you throught the pros and cons of each and then show you how to set up your choice of thumb opening.
You will be knitting the body of your mitten (with your chosen thumb design) up to the little valley where your thumb and hand meet. In the next lesson, I will show you how to set aside your thumb and continue on up your hand.
Pop on over to the Knittin’ Mittens Knit-A-Long (KAL) and do some mitten knitting!
You can join this KAL at any time! We’re having a grand time learning to knit nice, warm, comforting mittens.
