Class Title: Twined Knitting / Two Ended Knitting – in the Round

Teacher Name:  Beverly A Bortner

Class Length:  3 hours

Class Fee:  $35.00

Class Day/Time:  Sunday, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Class Description:

Twined knitting is a traditional Scandinavian knitting technique dating back at least to the 17thcentury in Sweden. The fabric that results from this technique is thicker, warm, and resilient, due to the two yarns which twine around each other as the piece is worked. Decorative stitches can also be made with this technique.

Students will work in the round to make a wrist warmer. You will learn the traditional cast-on, twined knitting, twined purling, and patterning with the ‘O” stitch, and the Crook stitch giving you all of the knowledge needed to make other projects in the round.
