These warm and cozy fingerless mitts are a wonderful way to introduce yourself to the fascinating Swedish technique Tvåändsstickning, or Two-End knitting, also known as twined knitting.
You will learn a twined knitting cast-on, the basics (knit and purl), and a selection of motifs. In addition, you'll learn to read a twined knitting chart and work the Crooked Thumb Gusset by increasing in twined knitting. Finish off with the Herringbone Braid at the top!
