I have agreed to teach a co-worker how to knit a mitten. In the past, I have always done my mittens on DPNs, but I got to thinking that I'm sure they could be done using two circs (which I've never tried myself, but aspire to). What do you all think - would it be easier for a beginner to learn to knit mittens on DPNs or should I try to figure out how to teach her on two circs? Any suggestions for particularly clear explanations on this?
Amy's two-circ video is as clear as it gets IMHO...I never used DPNs and had hardly even done any circ knitting at all when I learned to do it this way, and I thought it was a snap! But that's just me. :D
I learned how to use two circs long after I knew how to use dpns and regular circs. I'm not sure if I would have understood how to work the two circs if I didn't already have an understanding of circular knitting. But that's just me.
