Gather Your Supplies
Before you begin, make sure you have all the necessary supplies. You'll need two knitting skewers
in your preferred color, scissors, and a tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
Start by casting on an even number of stitches, depending on the desired width of your sweater. The twisted splits model
is created using a combination of knit and purl stitches, so it's important to keep track of your stitch count as you go along.
Begin the Twisted Splits Pattern
The twisted splits pattern
is a bit more complex than some other patterns, but with practice, you'll be able to master it in no time.
Start by knitting the first two stitches together, but don't drop them off the left needle. Instead, bring the right needle in between the two stitches and knit the first stitch again. Then, drop both stitches off the left needle.Next, purl the next stitch, then bring the yarn to the front and slip the next stitch purlwise. Bring the yarn back to the back and knit the slipped stitch through the back loop. This creates the twisted split.Continue this pattern
until the end of the row, alternating between knitting two stitches together and creating twisted splits.
Repeat the Pattern
Continue the twisted splits pattern for the desired length of your sweater. Remember to keep track of your stitch count and pattern to ensure consistency throughout.
Bind Off and Finishing Touches
When you've reached your desired length, bind off all stitches and weave in any remaining ends using a tapestry needle. If desired, add a collar or buttons to the front of the sweater for a polished finish.
The twisted splits model is a versatile base for showcasing your creativity. Experiment with different colors and yarns to create a truly unique sweater that reflects your personal style.
