Description ~ Introduction Twined Knitting

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. The Scandinavians believe if you keep your pulse warm, your whole body is warm, and in this three hour class, you’ll knit one of a pair of wrist warmers!

Materials Needed ~ Introduction Twined Knitting

  • Yarns:
    • 3 to 4 ounces 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.
    • 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: US size 6 or 7 (4 or 4.5 mm) double pointed needles or two circulars of any length.
  • Notions: Stitch markers, sticky notes or a magnetic board to keep one's place on the chart.

Homework ~ Introduction Twined Knitting

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