Your Mittens, Your Way
Mary Scott Huff
Make the mittens you've always wanted! In this class, students design their own mittens by choosing each element from Mary's menu of choices (edge/cuff treatment, thumb architecture, hand design and top shaping). You'll learn the why and how of each decision as you plan, design and execute your own personal mitten masterpiece. Requested by Mary's previous students, this class is based on her upcoming book on the subject The Mitten Handbook. Includes exclusive workbook.
