Study Buddy Mitts by Elizabeth Smith Knits | So you’ve learned the knitting basics, like casting-on, the knit and purl stitches and binding-off – but now what? The Study Buddy Mitts is a great skill-builder pattern and includes links to photo tutorials for each technique.

The techniques featured in the tutorials are:

  • Long-tail cast-on (using the thumb method)
  • Icord edge
  • binding-off and casting-on in the middle of your work
  • kfb increase
  • k2tog decrease
  • Picking up cast-on edge stitches
  • Three needle bind-off

If you are a more advanced knitter, you’ll still enjoy the simplicity of these mitts and you’ll have be able to whip up a pair in one evening!
