Twigg Stitch: A New Twist on Reversible Knitting
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
F&W Media-Interweave Press: Twigg Stitch. A brand-new technique for creating completely reversible knits. Readers will discover a new type of color knitting that produces a fully reversible fabric with mirrored or completely different sides. Worked by knitting two yarns at the same time, Twigg stitch allows the knitter to create two different fabrics. Not only can the knitter create reversible colorwork, but also different cable patterns or even lace that is a different color on each side. This book contains ten patterns from simple hats and mitts, demonstrating the stitch in its most basic form, to a shaped lace shawl. Authors: Vicki Twigg. Softcover; 168 pages. Published Year: 2014. ISBN 978-1-59668-822-3. Imported.

The knit and purl yarns exchange roles to create what looks like a color-stranded design, but without the stranding. The edges are finished with a subtle lace pattern followed by your choice of a single-color or a two-color ribbed bind-off. Finished Size About 48" (122 cm) in circumference and 9" (23 cm) wide.

Double-Rib Decrease, light side Double-Rib Decrease, dark side Increases Just as for decreases, when you increase in Twigg stitch, keep in mind that the increases have to be worked in pairs to maintain the light-dark pattern of the knits and purls. That is, each increase involves a knit stitch of one color and a purl stitch of the other color. Reverse
