My latest article dives deep into Twisted Stitches (intentional ones). It explores how to form them properly and tips to making the finished fabric look its best. When I served on the review committee for the Knitting Guild Association, I reviewed so many submissions from knitters who had beautiful tension in all of their swatches until the Bavarian or Austrian Twisted Stitch swatch. Then everything seemed to foul up. This article explains what can go wrong and why, and provides suggestions for how to avoid some of the problems that can occur. You can find the article in Interweave Knits Summer 2021 magazine or you can read it online by clicking below.
