From the Stitch Description: Here’s Arachne herself, the great-grandmother of all of the world’s spinners and weavers, and still one of the best of them. Who among us can match her skill?
What’s that - you don’t think she’s very pretty? Well, never mind. The pattern techniques that make her in yarn (as well as her busy real-life children in your garden) have much to teach you.

It has been chosen deliberately as an example to show you almost every kind of knitting operation that you might encounter in a twist-stitch design.
