This book is a fabulous resource and covers an ancient form of knitting.

The original book on this two-end knitting was in Swedish, by Birgitta Dandanelle and Ulla Danielsson, and the English translation (Twined knitting) is now out of print. This book, NEW TWISTS on twined Knitting, is an excellent introduction to the technique, with clear instructions for both traditional and modern knits. I recommend it for all who have a love for the traditional, for hand-knits, and for all teachers of knitting. The illustrations are fine enough to make this a coffee-table book while you are not using it to study the patterns!
