At Twisted, knitting is so much more than just our favorite way to relax. It brings us together to share our love of making, of color and texture, our crafty tips, and our creative enthusiasm. Along the way, we are also fortunate to share our humor, our stories, and our hope for a kinder, more beautiful world with an amazing community of people.

For all these reasons, we are super excited to announce our 2017 knit-along series, Knit 12 Together. Every month, we’ll feature an accessible, entertaining pattern, and help you find the perfect yarn for it. We’ll be featuring plenty of local designers, and we’re cooking up some fun surprises, too.

Join us for a cast-on-abration on the first Monday of each month, and follow along with your friends near and far on our blog, FaceBook, Instagram, and Ravelry. Tag your photos with #k12tog. There is no need to register, and you are not required to share your projects, though we’d love to see and admire them. There is no requirement to purchase the recommended yarns from us, however we hope you'll choose to support Twisted! You are welcome to drop in just for the projects that speak to you, or challenge yourself to complete all 12 with us. Either way, we’re delighted to have you aboard and knitting with us!


Cast On Party: Monday, January 2 from 5-7p

Project: Tool Box Cowl by Adventure Du Jour Designs (Debbi Stone and Marcy Vandale)

We kick off our year of knit-a-longs with the addictive Tool Box Cowl and one of its designers, Debbi Stone. With stripes and a playful stitch pattern, this is a knit you won’t want to put down. Go stash diving, or pick out a fresh palette of Knitted Wit Smarties or Madelinetosh Unicorn Tails for a unique piece that will be as fun to wear as it is to make. 

Local dyer & gosh darn hero Knitted Wit is rushing us an order of Smarties for the cast on party - and she's providing a door prize for one lucky attendee to win! To use Smarties, you'll either need to get 3 skeins per color to work the large cowl; or 2 skeins per color to work the small cowl - and have enough to make the matching Tool Box Mitts, too!; or modify the pattern slightly by doing 3 fewer rows per st st section and 2 fewer per garter rib section at start and finish. Join local designer Debbi Stone and the Twistedistas on January 2 from 5:00-7:00pm for help choosing colors, a hand getting started, and generally enjoying each other's company as we start a year of knitting along with Twisted!

Materials: 52 yards of 6 different colors fingering weight yarn, for a total of 312 yds. When selecting your color palette, take care that colors used next to each other in progression are contrasting. If you wish to make the longer infinity cowl length, instructions are included for a longer and wider version using 130 yards each of 6 different colors, 780 yards total. US 2½ - 3.0 mm and US 3 - 3.25 mm needles.


Cast On Party: Monday, February 6 from 5-7p

Project: Rose City Mystery Knit Along by Casapinka

RCYC Twine. Sock.

Join the shops of the  Rose City Yarn Crawl on a Mystery Knit Along! We will be knitting a fun cowl that uses two different colors of yarn and a number of different stitch patterns, but is still simple enough for the advanced beginner. It is designed for a variegated or bright yarn alongside a more subtle color, so don’t be afraid to try something punchy! 

Hosting the cast on party will be Twistedista Rachel - the dyer of Twine. yarns. She'll help you pick out colors for your personalized project. MKAL schedule: December 2nd: Pattern sales begin. January 25th: Clue 1. February 1st: Clue 2. February 8th: Clue 3. February 15th: Clue 4. March 2nd – 5th: Rose City Yarn Crawl. Wear your Mystery Along project!
