Think twined knitting might be a bit too much for you? Don’t worry - there is an ebook with a comprehensive photo tutorial as well as patterns for all three twined knitting hats in the Woolyn series, Doelger, Linden and Rheingold.

___________________________________________

Knit in two colors with the Tvåändsstickning or twined knitting technique the Linden Hat is a cozy and squishy hat that will keep your ears warm all winter long.

Less common than other fair isle or stranded knitting techniques, twined knitting creates a dense, thick fabric by twisting the yarns between every stitch. Pick 2 colors that will pop against each other for best effect!

The Linden Hat is a fun first foray into twined knitting. Comprising of only two stitch patterns; regular twined knitting and a simple Hook Stitch Square, the hat works up quickly as you gain familiarity with the technique. The hat is fully charted.

Note on Gauge: Expect to get a different gauge for two-end twined knitting than for standard stockinette done with a single strand. For reference, single strand stockinette gauge is 17.5 sts and 22 rows = 4”/10cm.

CORRECTION - There is a typo in the explanation for the Hook Stitch with C2 - it should read P1 with C2, keeping C2 in front, k1 with C1, p1 with C2. It is updated in the new PDF as of 2/5/16 at 9am EST.
