Twisted Traveling Stitches with Anna Zilboorg
Austrian twisted travelling stitches create patterns in high relief that resemble woodcarvings. They can also provide a wonderful base for embroidery. They require a few special techniques (among them, how to interpret the special charts), careful knitting, and some practice, but are well worth the effort. This class will focus on flat knitting, which is much harder than working these patterns in the round 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
Smooth, light-colored, #3 or #4 (DK or worsted weight) yarn with a tight twist, appropriate needles.

Knitting Basics:

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.
