Twigg Stitch with Vicki Twigg
Friday 19 February – 2pm – 5pm book tickets here
A new twist on reversible knitting, in this class we’ll discover the Twigg stitch technique. We will start by learning the different ways of holding the yarns to make the basic rib, then we will take a look at various stitch patterns, how to handle problems, and talk about anything you are interested in with regard to this two- colour, double-sided knitting technique.
Experience level: You need a good knowledge of basic knitting skills. The key to doing Twigg stitch is in how you hold and use the yarns (you do need to hold onto both). We will begin with holding one yarn in each hand so learning to knit holding the yarn in your ‘other’ hand is useful (only knit is needed for the left hand) and we will move on to holding both yarns in the same hand for those who want to.
Please bring: Two colors of the same type of yarn with enough contrast to tell them apart. Sport or medium weight that is fairly smooth is the best yarn to learn on and experiment with. You will also need the recommended size needles for the yarn. You can bring a size larger and smaller to try out as well.
