This lesson has just a tiny bit of stress because you will need to decide what sort of thumb shaping you want to use on your mittens. Don't worry! I walk you throught the pros and cons of each and then show you how to set up your choice of thumb opening.

You will be knitting the body of your mitten (with your chosen thumb design) up to the little valley where your thumb and hand meet. In the next lesson, I will show you how to set aside your thumb and continue on up your hand.

Pop on over to the Knittin' Mittens Knit-A-Long (KAL) and do some mitten knitting!

You can join this KAL at any time! We're having a grand time learning to knit nice, warm, comforting mittens.

I usually don't have any problem with the "360p" but I think your daughter is right. It can make a difference.

It's okay to redo each project that many times because you are obviously learning from it. ♥cheryl

I was reading some earlier feedback about browser problem, After switch to "firefox" my daughter have me to switch from "360p" to "480p" to view the video clip. That is the button right beside sound ion. It can be seem once to click onto "Play" button.

Thank You Cherlybwaters, I have to undo all my knitting projects ...for example all my knitted hats took twenty time to get them right. smile!

LOL! the mitten only ten times. I love knitting, but since do not have clear understanding "on how" add colors into my work.So, I just make small crochet square & connect them. I know knitting how be short time frame in making a throw or blanket. smile!

Everything looks good to me. But Teresa, you say on your page that you are a beginning knitter/crocheter but all the pictures on your page do not look like beginner projects and your mittens certainly don't look like a beginner's project. ♥c

Hi! I have been work hard on my 1st mitten.... I did not have 4mm (6 US ) ndl.... So! my CO was different. I used "Knit Picks" US 3 circular k ndl. I truly need help, on reading a "Gauge". ... I ended up with a CO 52 sts.

I hope my "Thumb Gusset" is alright. However, I have ordered US: 4, 6, 7, & 10 interchangeable knitting needles.

I am trying to send a pics' to see if my mitten Thumb Gusset Look Okay to Any One.

I have a YouTube account also. I'm going to have to go check out my settings over there. Thanks, Lindsay!

I think I figured it out!!!!! I had forgotten that I had a you tube account. My computer must recognize that and when I went to my account there is a tab for favourites and my knitting videos were there...... So a graet place to keep them for future reference
