Norah Gaughan’s Twisted Stitch Sourcebook: A Breakthrough Guide to Knitting and Designing

Norah Gaughan


The essential guide to using simple twisted stitches to add interest and beauty to handknits

Master the simple and addictive art of the twisted stitch. The basics are easy to learn, and the design possibilities (and twist combinations that come to light once you begin) are almost endless. The book starts with a treasure trove of twisted stitch variations, starting with patterns made from diagonals and building from there—adding horizontal and vertical elements, combining twisted stitches with lace or polygon knitting, and pushing boundaries with patterns that twist stitches in every row for more advanced textures.

The book offers 125-plus stitch patterns, along with guidance on how the twists are engineered and how knitters can create designs of their own. Norah’s always-clear instructions are presented in a conversational, easy-to-understand voice that proceeds naturally as one twisted stitch leads to the next. Readers can test their newfound skills with the 15 garment patterns included—irresistible designs for hats, wraps, sweaters, and more.
