Twining in Rows

Twisting your yarns around each other while alternating stitch colors.

Twining is one of my very favorite colorwork techniques. I learned it quite by accident when I was first experimenting with colorwork in my knitting.

After some research, I discovered that twining is a traditional Scandinavian technique known as tvåändsstickning in Swedish and tvebandsstrikking in Norwegian. I'd like to say that this method just feels natural to me because of my Nordic heritage, but that's probably just in my head.
