Twigg Stitch
By

Rating
A brand-new technique for creating completely reversible knitting. Readers will discover a new type of color knitting that produces a fully reversible fabric with mirrored or completely different sides. Worked by knitting two yarns at the same time, Twigg stitch allows the knitter to create two completely different fabrics. Not only can the knitter create simple reversible colorwork, but also different cable patterns or even lace that is a different color on each side. Unique and fascinating as the technique is, it's not difficult to master. Anyone with basic knitting skills can quickly learn. The reversible knitting of Twigg Stitch teaches the basics of casting on, handling yarns, increasing and decreasing, changing colors, and knitting in the round. Vicki also provides a stitch dictionary of basic to more complex color patterns, textured patterns, and cables. Ten patterns round out the book, from simple hats and mitts, demonstrating the stitch in its most basic form, to a shaped lace shawl.

Reviews

-The knit work in this book is beautiful and I love the idea of reversible knitting. The patterns are beautiful as well, and the instructions are well-written and easy to follow.- --Knits Reads and Reviews -...this is so much more than just one stitch, it's more of a new technique for reversible double knitting. I was so impressed with the book--not just the patterns but all the detailed how-to's and the stitch dictionary. A really great output!- --Wendy Knits -The fourth and final chapter of the book is a stitch dictionary, giving you detailed instructions for a wide variety of variations on the Twigg stitch. This section will inspire designers for years to come. In some ways, this is the most valuable part of the book because it opens the door to so many possibilities.- --My Central Jersey's -In Stitches- Column -Vicki gives lots of instructions and pictures to explain how to hold everything, how to maneuver your yarn, how to cast-on, etc. The instructions were great! She shows you how to hold your yarns in separate hands, or both colors in your right hand, or both colors in your left hand.- --Banana Moon Studio -Knitters searching for a new method of playing with color will want to explore Twigg's patterns, then try their hand at some of the additional stitches shown in the stitch-dictionary section of this action-packed book.- --Yarn Market News -Colorwork knitters will appreciate Twigg's creative contribution to knitting literature the most, but those new to colorwork may find the Twigg stitch surprisingly accessible.- --Library Journal -Twigg Stitch by Vicki Twigg is a new technique using familiar stitches with terrific results.- --Hartford Knitting Examiner "The knit work in this book is beautiful and I love the idea of reversible knitting.
