Professor  Knitting Classes



Lovikka Mittens with Wendy Johnson

Wendy Johnson  Lovikka Mittens
In this 3.5-hour workshop class you will learn how to knit a mitten in the Swedish Lovikka style. Lovikka is a town located near the Arctic Circle (so they know about knitting for warmth!) with a renowned tradition of this style of knitting with embroidered embellishment around the cuff. This mitten is knit in the round on double-pointed needles using a single ply yarn.

The class will learn about the interesting history of the Lovikka knitting tradition and knit, embroider, and learn how to "full" (lightly felt) a mini version of the Lovikka mitten. (The mini mitten is a young child's size but the pattern provided will also include an adult-sized mitten that may be knit at home.) Making the mini-mitten will give you the opportunity to learn all the skills you need to knit all sizes of Lovikka mittens.

Skill level: The student must know how to knit in the round on double-pointed needles.  

Supplies needed: Size 9 double-pointed needles (preferably in a set of 5), small stitch holder (optional), a tapestry needle, and one skein of Àlafosslopi yarn (two skeins if you'd like to have enough to make a pair of adult mittens afterwards). Traditional Lovikka mittens are white, but students are welcome to use the color of their choice. There is a 10% discount on class materials on the first day of class. The embroidery yarn will be provided by the instructor. $40
