Pattern Details

These Twined Knitted (or Two-End) Gloves are made with the Swedish technique Tvandsstickning, which developed in Sweden around the 17th century in the Dalarna region. By utilizing a yarn from each end of the ball and using the yarns to work alternate stitches, a thick, warm fabric with embossed motifs can be made. This pattern assumes you know nothing about the technique and has numerous technique boxes explaining all you need to know. There are even directions for a decorative cast-on! In addition, full charts are included for the left and right hands. The finger shaping is explained in the text. This is a wonderful technique that yields a warm, thick, and cozy fabric. Charts, photographs, and technique boxes are included. Enjoy!
