Venue: The Lyceum – 201 S. Washington St
The intriguing twisted stitch patterns (strickmuster) of Southern Germany and Austria are known in their native German as a signature of “Bäuerliches Stricken”–“Peasant Knitting”–but their effect in knitted fabric is of unsurpassed richness. We will study and practice the twist maneuvers required of the technique, and also learn how to read the special charts in which the patterns have most often been recorded.
Skills needed: Fluency in the basic techniques of knitting, including knitting in the round. Prior familiarity and comfort with working from charted patterns will be helpful.
