Sometimes it’s fun to see what can happen when you just play with yarn. A few months ago, I was designing this way – knitting and mixing lots of colors, while working out a pattern in mind for a playful accessory. Ultimately I was left with dozens of colorful ends. I really dislike weaving in ends, especially when doing colorwork. And that’s when I realized that it was a perfect opportunity NOT to weave in the ends at all! Instead, I twisted them, ending up with lots of colorful fringe all over the necklace.
As you can maybe tell, I love using twisted fringe as much as I can (seen here in our recent free pattern, Lambie).
Twisted yarn is an easy and cute technique that may be useful in your upcoming knitted piece.
