Twisted Stitches with Norah Gaughan
Date: May 25-26 (Fri-Sat)
Instructor: Norah Gaughan
Norah will show you why she loves twisted stitches, while she teaches you her favorite method for knitting right twists and left twists. Yes, there is a difference between twisted stitches and 1/1 cables! Students will explore the difference, then make super easy mini cables, followed by a deeper dive into just how much you can do with the diagonal lines made by twisted stitches. Learning how to combine right twists and left twists with easy lace will also be covered. Have fun searching for design inspiration and follow up by inventing your own twisted stitch patterns. How can something so simple do so much? Combination knitters are more than welcome. Norah knows how to make twisted stitches easy for you too!
