Introduction to Twined Knitting
Workshop Fee: $115
Saturday, October 12
9am-12pm
Continental Breakfast Provided
Class Description:
Curious about the 400 year-old Swedish technique of Twined 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, students knit one of a pair of wristers while learning a traditional cast-on, twined knitting, twined purling, and patterning (the “O” stitch, the Crook stitch, and motifs that combine these, and the Chain Path). Learn how to manage your yarns so that untwisting becomes a cinch! Reading Twined Knitting charts is also included.
Length: 3 hours
Level:  Intermediate. Must be comfortable with double pointed needles or working with two circulars. Ability to knit English style (yarn held in the right hand) is very helpful, but not required.
Supply List:
  • Yarn for this class will be provided by Knitting Temptations
  • One set of size 6 or 7 (4 or 4.5 mm) double pointed needles or two circulars of any length.
  • Stitch markers, sticky notes or a magnetic board to keep one’s place on the chart.
