Twisted Open Viking Knit

Twisted knitting is open, single knitting. It's never pulled through a drawplate. so it must be the finished length when the knitting is completed.

How to twist the twisted knit

Find the middle of the knitting and grasp it 1 - 2 inches (4-5 cm) on each side of the middle, twist one hand forward, the other back.

Change to a U.S. No. 7 knitting needle and twist (in the same directions as before) about 1M? inches (4 cm) out from the first twist.

Continue changing to a smaller knitting needle each 1inches (4 cm) until you reach the ends.

This method results in a gentle taper toward the ends, which complements this kind of knitting. Of course, you can twist the entire chain around the same size knitting needle, if you like. (See page 58 for knitting needle conversions.)
