Twisted Traveling Stitches with Anna Zilboorg
Austrian twisted travelling stitches create patterns in high relief that resemble woodcarvings. They require a few special techniques (among them, how to interpret the charts) and some practice, but are well worth the effort if you enjoy careful knitting. They can also provide a wonderful base for embroidery. This class will focus on flat knitting, which is much harder than in the round with these patterns, but gives the greatest flexibility for usage. After a few exercises, we'll make a cell-phone cover that could easily turn into cuffs for an elegant sweater.

Supplies
#3 or #4 (DK or worsted weight) yarn in a light color, appropriate needles, and a small mirror if you have one.

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.

Homework
None
