Class Details:

Bored with only two colors in your double-knitting? Add a third (or a fourth)! With more than two colors per row in double-knitting, the rules change a bit as compared with standard double-knitting. Learn how to choose a color rotation and maintain it throughout a three-color pattern. Open new doors to design possibilities that were previously impossible (or at least improbable)! You’ll also learn how to integrate the third color into a foolproof 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.
