Grace, a lovely mitten pattern in our new fall yarn, Berroco Mojo, is oh so simple to knit…with one small quirk. You cast on from the top of the mitten and work down! I don’t know about you, but I have never done such a thing. It’s called a Turkish cast on and Amy just taught me how to do this morning, so I promise you can pick it up quickly!
This technique calls for three double pointed needles. You place the yarn in between two of your needles and wrap the yarn around both 6 times. The wrap will form six stitches on one needle and six stitches on the other for a total of twelve stitches.
Follow along as I demonstrate!
Now what are you waiting for! Pick up some Mojo and cast on for your new pair of mittens.
