Class Details:

Do you love the reversible fabric of double-knitting but want something more than endless stockinette? Not quite ready for double-knit cables or lace? Add some intrigue with double-knit textures! Add purls to your reversible repertoire to expand the possibilities available to you. In a small swatch, you’ll learn how to achieve reverse double-knitting, plus best practices for vertical and horizontal transitions. As with most of my other workshops, you’ll also learn a really clean double-knit selvedge and a bind-off that mirrors the cast-on.

Technique Requirements: knit/purl, cast on/bind off, chart reading, easy colorwork, You should be comfortable with modern (two colors at once) double-knitting from recent experience.
