Textured Twined Knitted Mittens, 6 hours
Students will learn the Swedish technique of tvåänstickning, or twined knitting, by knitting a small mitten using worsted weight yarn. The mitten is worked circularly on double pointed needles and includes many techniques: three twined knitting cast-ons, reading and working from a chart, the "O" stitch, Chain Path, Purl Deep Stitch, a spiraled thumb gusset, a traditional motif for the front of the mitten, and a choice of tip shapings at the end of the mitten. Designing will be discussed briefly as well.
