While I prefer to teach double-knitting flat for a number of reasons, there are many good patterns done in the round and it is, in fact, easier to double-knit in the round than flat. However, in the space of a short workshop, we won't have time to do a full hat cast-on, so this is also an opportunity for me to teach my preferred small-diameter knitting method using two circular needles.
In this workshop, you'll learn my 2-color cast-on for double-knitting, learn to join double-knitting in the round and follow an all-over chart. You'll learn about options for jog reduction and of course, how to double-knit on two circulars. You are welcome to use DPNs or magic loop if you would rather, but I will not be teaching those techniques.
Technique Reqirements: knit/purl, cast on/bind off, chart reading
Before coming to class, please watch the cast-on video (https://double-knitting.com/workshops/foundations/double-knitting-in-the-round/) and try the cast-on with some spare yarn. We will go over the CO in class but the more people who have already tried it, the faster we can get into the “meat” of the workshop.
2 distinct solid colors (1 light, 1 darker) of plain yarn in the DK to worsted weight range and two circular needles (of any length) in an appropriate size for your chosen yarn.
