Twined Textured Fingerless Mitts with Beth Brown-Reinsel
Learn and apply the Swedish techniques of Tvåndsstickning or twined knitting by knitting a fingerless mitten using worsted weight yarn. The mitt is worked circularly on double-pointed needles and includes many techniques: the 'O' stitch, chain path, purl deep stitch, an asymmetrical thumb gusset, and traditional motifs.
Note: Must be proficient with double-pointed needles, Magic Loop or working with 2 circulars.
3 oz of plain, #4 (worsted weight) yarn (NO single ply yarns); 1 oz of contrast yarn; 4mm/US 6 dpns.
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
Wind yarn as a center pull ball if it is not already a pull-skein. Find both ends of the ball before class.
