Textured Twined Knitted Socks with Beth Brown-Reinsel

Students will learn the Swedish technique of tvåändsstickning, or twined knitting, by knitting a small sock, using worsted weight yarn. Twined knitting is worked with two yarns of the same color, twined around each other, and creates a warmer, denser fabric than conventional stranded knitting. The sock is worked circularly on double pointed needles and includes many techniques: three twined knitting cast-ons, reading and working from a chart, the "O" stitch, Chain Path, a traditional motif for the leg, shaping the toe, and working an unusual method for an afterthought heel.

Prerequisite:
Participants must be comfortable with double pointed needles or working with two circulars or Magic Loop. Ability to knit English style is strongly suggested
