Carex is the class project (along with a pair of coordinating cuffs) for my Twisted Stitches class. Â I wanted a pattern that utilized traditional twisted stitch patterns that would include the different permutations of stitch patterns you’ll commonly see.
Note: Â There are still spots for this class at Taos!
I used to use my Twist Mitts for the class, but worsted weight yarn will be much easier to work with than fingering or sport weight!
