The tvåändsstickning technique uses two working yarns, one from each end of the skein. In this tutorial, different color yarns are used to help you differentiate between the two working yarns (end). They will be referred to as End A and End B throughout the tutorial. Which one is the current, or active, working yarn changes with each stitch. End A will be active for one stitch, End B the next, End A for the one following that, and so on.

This is a picture tutorial of steps above for both the Traditional and Non-Traditional Methods. Steps 1-3 are the same for both so the Non-Traditional Method picks up at step 4. The difference between the two is how the working yarn crosses. For the Traditional Method, it crosses in front; for the Non-Traditional method, it crosses in back. You can use either method, but you should not mix them. The last two pictures are of the RS and WS of the fabric. The twisting will appear on the WS; the RS looks basically the same except the stitches are a little elongated.
