Description: Curious about the 400-year-old Swedish technique of Twined, or Two-End, Knitting?  This unusual method of knitting produces a very warm, firmly elastic fabric and motifs not possible in any other type of knitting. In this three-hour class, knit one of a pair of wristers while learning a traditional cast-on, twined knitting, twined purling, and motifs that combine these such as the "O" stitch, the Crook stitch, and the Chain Path.  Learn how to manage your yarns so that untwisting becomes a cinch!  Reading Twined Knitting charts is also included.

Skill Level: Intermediate

Homework: Wind your yarn into a center pull ball if it is not already a pull-skein.  Find both ends of the ball before class.

Tools Needed:
  • Yarn: One skein of worsted weight wool yarn, preferably light colored.  The skein must be wound as a center-pull ball because you will be working with both ends.  Also, at least 4 yards of a contrast color of worsted weight yarn. No single ply yarns!  Heathers and fuzzy yarns obscure the patterns.  Four ply yarns show the textures best. 
  • Needles: One set of size 6 or 7 (4 or 4.5 mm) DP needles or two circulars of any length.
  • Notions: Stitch markers, sticky notes or a magnetic board to keep one's place on the chart

Materials Fee: None
