One of the first classes I taught nationally was called “Round Up! Four Ways to Knit Around.” The projects used to teach the techniques are now available outside of class, as well as with size options for the mitts. Simple knitting will let you practice working in the round. The neck warmer has a curled bottom border, with slight shaping as you knit upward in Roman Stitch. Work the mitts on double-pointed needles, two circulars, or one super-long needle, it’s up to you!
