    Does the two at a time video provide information for the bulky knit mittens? The pattern seems confusing to me when you get to the thumb. I have knit the worsted weight mittens but the bulky weight pattern is hard for to visualize.

      Hello Theron,
      Yes, the Two at a Time Mittens course does include instructions on bulky weight mittens
      Happy Knitting,


        Thanks, I will get the video. It doesn’t make sense in the pattern for the thumb. Rnd 1: K1, M1L, PM, k to end, PM, M1L. I’m unsure how to place a marker or M1L after you have knit to the end. There are no stitches left to pick up for the M1L.
