ETC Advanced Strickmuster: The Beautiful Twisted Stitch Patterns of Austria
These gorgeous patterns wind and twist around each other in complicated and intricate designs, but actually are done using only two basic techniques â€” without the use of a cable needle. We will sample some of the 174 charming patterns from Maria Erlbacher's book, Strickmuster and learn how to read the unique yet logical charts. Each person will then choose and start a project. Projects can range from wrist warmers to mittens, socks or a hat. There will be charts and directions for all projects which you can either use as is or modify in any way you wish.
