It begins with a provisional cast on. Both the top and the bottom borders are knitted ONTO the piece as you work, neatly sealing in the stitches and achieving a lovely, flexible edge. The pattern is free from Ravelry and you must download it for the class.

This is a WOW project. The designer describes it this way: “Fun and highly practical mittens with flip-tops that will keep your fingers toasty warm but allow them to make a quick escape when you need to unlock the door or button your coat. The cable and petal pattern on the cuffs grows into an elegant motif on the back of the hand that invisibly incorporates the necessary shaping for the thumb.” You will learn a lot in this class too: chart reading, cabling, icord, working a thumb and finishing. A lot of knitting techniques packed into a small project! Join Karen for this fun project!
