Join Sivia tomorrow night and learn this wickedly clever cast on and create a beautiful cowl or sweater…



Harmonia’s Rings: Exploring the Moebius and More!

$35 with Sivia Harding

The Harmonia’s Rings family of patterns use Cat Bordhi’s Moebius cast on to achieve the mysterious spiral neck shape; they also feature a stitch pattern that creates concentric rings reminiscent of ancient architecture. This cowl sits cape-like over the shoulders, and suits a wide range of body types. This class introduces many techniques: the Moebius cast on, shaping and texture with the Moebius structure, and the charming beaded picot bind off, among others. We discuss customizing the shape to fit any body type. A tunic and a sweater based on the cowl are shown.

Date/Time: Tuesday, October 21; 5-8pm

Materials – Either bring your own or before/during class get 20% off on: At least 500 yds of worsted weight/aran yarn, more if made longer than the pattern shows.

Includes: Harmonia’s Rings Cowl pattern by Sivia Harding.

Interested?  Come in, call 503-922-1150, or register on-line here!



Charity Crafting – Warmth for All Campaign

Posted by Kat in Charity, Knitting

Did you know that Twisted is a drop-site for the Warmth for All Campaign which collects knit and crocheted items for distribution at Transition Project shelters in Portland?


We accept items all year, but the need is especially great during the fall and winter. So if you’ve got a bit of crafting time, please consider making a warm hat, scarf, cowl, mittens, gloves or socks for someone in need and delivering it to Twisted. We’ll take it from there!

Need some pattern ideas? How about one of these from the Twisted Pattern Line?
