Laura Ricketts | Introduction to Sámi Knitting
Oct 11, 2019
9:00am - 12:00pm
Event date

Cost: $85; Pre-Registration Required

The Sami are Scandinavia’s only UN-recognized indigenous people and have a culture rich with fiber traditions. In Sami Knitted Mitten Techniques, students will be introduced to Sami mittens and four characteristics, which set them apart: cuffs, thumbs, decreases and braids (with or without tassels). You will create a sample swatch by practicing each of these elements and leave with the knowledge to translate our skills to a full-sized pair of mittens.

Skill Level: Beginner- Intermediate

What to Bring: Worsted weight, wool yarn — two accent colors and a main color; needles to achieve a gauge of 5sts/in (Rauma Vamsegarn knit on US 5 / 3.75 mm needles, recommended)

Other Information: This course requires a knowledge of how to cast on, decrease, knit and purl in the round, and do color work.
