Color, Tips & Techniques

Class Details:

Double-knitting is a unique method of making a fabric with no “wrong” side and a built-in reversible colorwork pattern. Significantly different from the standard intarsia and Fair Isle colorwork that are so well known, double knitting is a labor-intensive but wholly worthwhile technique to have in your repertoire. In this workshop, you’ll learn Alasdair’s 2-color cast-on for double-knitting, get comfortable with the techniques involved, then move into colorwork. At the end of the workshop, you should have a motif swatch and be confident that you can tackle a larger standard double-knitting pattern.

Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; long-tail cast on; previous experience with colorwork and chart following is also helpful but not necessary



Supplies to Bring:

2 contrasting colors of plain yarn in the DK- to worsted-weight range and a pair of straight or circular needles in the proper size.
