One of our favourite yarns at Serenity Knits is Classic Elite Liberty Wool Print. Karen recommends it for her mitered mittens class in October.
|Mitered Mittens (Karen) Two 2 hr classes - $40.00 + supplies|
Date & Time
|Wednesday evenings, October 15, and 29, 6:30 P.M. – 8:30 P.M|
|If you dislike working on double pointed needles, these are the mittens for you! Worked in one piece beginning with the cuff, seams are sewn along the outside of the hand and around the pointed top as well as the inside of the thumb. The thumb gusset is worked on the side of the mitten resulting in a mitten that will fit either hand. Garter stitch makes them extra squishy and warm and the mitered shaping adds interest in the self-striping yarn.|
|Intermediate. The knitter should have good basic knitting skills and be able to follow simple patterns.|

These are just a couple of colourways.
Liberty knits sort of in stripes but with some staggering of the colour shift.
It is also very fun to use in chevron, mitered or ripple style patterns.
