Antje The Dutch Knitters
  Class - Warm Hands - Estonian Mittens and Wrist Warmers

For knitters with at least one year of knitting experience!

Estonia is one of the most richly filled treasure-troves of traditional knitting techniques in Europe. Estonian mittens have beautiful motifs, special cast-ons and decorative borders. These specific Estonian knitting techniques are a treat for any knitter and are the prefect addition to the knitting repertoire of many a knitter.

In October 2011 the first book Warm Hands – Estonian Mittens and Wrist Warmers was published. The book contains thirteen designs for mittens and wrist warmers. For most knitters the information given in the book will be sufficient to knit the mittens and wrist warmers, but for anyone who wants to dive deeper into the subject or wants to learn the basic principles in practice, can participate in the class Warm Hands.

Included in the price is a package (yarn, knitting needles and/or accessories) with a shop price value of 10 euros. Also the lunch, consisting of a deluxe sandwich plus one drink at a restaurant nearby, coffee and cakes in the morning and tea and biscuits/chocolates in the afternoon are included in the price.

Bring with you: some sets of sock needles in sizes 2 – 3 mm.

Practical to bring with you: some smooth, twined, left-over yarn to make samples, scissors, tape measure, darning needle, stitch markers, pen and paper. An extra set of needles can come in handy but they are not necessary. You can leave your samples on the needles this way and take them home with you.

Participants must be present between 10.00h. and 10.30h. in order to be able to start at 10.30h.

The classes are given in Dutch but it is often possible for English-speaking knitters to participate in the class. Please, consult The Dutch Knitters in advance.
