An Introduction to Swedish Twined Knitting
Suitable for the intermediate or more advanced knitter who is happy knitting in the round and using the Fair Isle technique.
Learn the ancient and beautiful Swedish Twined or ‘two-ended’ knitting technique. This technique, which is still used today in Scandinavia, produces a wonderfully firm and double thick fabric which is ideal for making mittens and socks.
During the workshop you will knit a ‘sample’, working in the round with 5 double-pointed needles and you will be given patterns for Twined mittens to take away and finish at home.
You will need to bring 2 different coloured balls of
good quality knitting wool in either 4ply or DK,
a set of 5 double-pointed needles.
You may find it useful to have
your own scissors, tapestry
needle, pencil and
