Want to knit breathtaking twisted and traveling stitches without a cable needle? Designer Donna Druchunas is here to show you how, using traditional Bavarian methods that give you more dimension and freedom. During class, Donna will teach you how to cross stitches over one another for patterns full of fantastic texture. You'll begin with an easy-to-follow breakdown of charts and symbols. Then, explore single-stitch crossings, wider crossings and even more complex maneuvers you're sure to love. Plus, you'll discover timeless embroidered embellishments, must-have finishing techniques and a class hat project that's perfect for honing your skills.
Meet author and knitting expert Donna Druchunas as she introduces you to beautiful examples of Bavarian twisted-stitch knitting, including the hat design you'll find in your class materials. Then, learn about the best yarn and needles to use and what Donna means by a "twisted stitch."
Donna demystifies charts by showing you how twisted and traveling stitches are notated. You'll also work twisted knit stitches and twisted purl stitches on swatches -- a great way to build your foundation for stunning patternwork.
Follow along with Donna as she shows how to move stitches over each other on the needle, making knit-over-knit twists and knit-over-purl twists. These maneuvers create the texture and graceful lines that are characteristic of this timeless knitting style.
