Bavarian Twisted Knitting
Description: Bavarian knitting, originating from the Bavarian Alps region of Europe comprises of traveling cables against twisted stitches. The twisted stitches create clean and well-defined stitches while the traveling cables have a nice design element and are usually 2 stitch cables that don’t use cable needles at all. The pattern appearance and charts seem complicated, yet once you understand the chart symbols, it becomes easy to follow and addicting! It’s a classic design and looks great on men, women and children. In class, we’ll practice a 2-color cast on, reading a Bavarian chart, and working cables without a cable needle along with 4 basic Bavarian cable stitches.
Required Skills: Advanced Beginner and above. Must be able to work in the round.
