Toasty: Twined Knitted Gloves
These Twined Knitted (or Two-End) Gloves are made with the Swedish technique Tvåändsstickning, 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. The pattern assumes you are not familiar with Twined Knitting and gives photos, charts, and explanations on theory and technique, covering yarn management, a traditional two-color cast-on, Twined Knitting, Twined Purling, the Crook Stitch, The "O" stitch, the Chain Path, and Twined Knitted Increasing. By knitting the textured cuff, the Crooked Thumb Gusset, and the medallion on the front of the gloves, you will learn to master this beautiful technique!
