Bavarian twisted stitch knitting is a beautiful, ornate style of knitting featuring stitches that are twisted and crossed in pairs to make delicate, sculptural designs. Patterns for this type of knitting are always charted rather than written out, and the various charting methods feature an array of symbols and conventions not commonly seen in other types of knitting charts. This class uses a cowl project to demonstrate how to read a chart for this type of knitting as well as how to work the stitches in the round. We will begin by using a cable needle to cross the stitches, but we will also practice working in the traditional manner, without the use of a cable needle. Bavarian stitches are some of the most refined of all the traditional stitch patterns and well worth adding to your repertoire.
