Color Twined Mittens

from 75.00

In 17th century Sweden a form of knitting was practiced called Tvåändsstickning, or two-end knitting. Using a strand from each end of a center pull ball of yarn, wound of either one or two colors of yarn, the created fabric has great warmth, strength, and durability as well as firm elasticity. This technique takes some patience and effort to master, but will soon reward the tenacious knitter with ease, moderate speed, and lovely garments. The classic Morning Glory motif in these mittens was knitted in garments for both men and women in the area of Hälsingland. One mitten will be knitted in class to learn and understand a twined knitting cast-on, yarn management, twined knitting, twined purling for a half-braid, working the chart, creating a thumb gusset, shaping the mitten tip, and completing the thumb. Intermediate level.
