    Description

    We’ll start with threaded-in patterns. These are wonderful multi-colored patterns that appear as if by magic. Simple turning creates complicated patterns because of the setup. Then we’ll move to Double-Card, Double Turn Diagonals. This technique warps quickly, but makes bold patterns with a lot of movement.
