Tutorial: Joined With a Twist

Illustration from Joined with a Twist tutorial“Some years ago I came across a scarf with vertical stripes of color created using separate balls of yarn joined with intarsia techniques. I wanted to make a cowl with the same vertical stripes, but I didn’t want to have 16 balls of yarn hanging off my needles! Rummaging through my mental techniques toolbox, I found the slip-stitch join-as-you-go techniques used here.”

“The squares of traditional knitting charts provide a graphic representation of knitting instructions. For many stitch patterns, charts resemble the fabric produced when following said instructions: color patterning, cable crossings, groupings of knits and purls are fairly straightforward. But what about patterns that add and subtract stitches, either singly or in groups, all in one row or spread across several? Gridded charts can’t convey the shifting fabric created by such arrangements of stitches.”
