Introduction to Double-Knitting with Alasdair Post-Quinn
Note: This class is currently FULL. If you would like to be put on the waiting list, please contact our customer service department at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-367-9327.
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, and then move into colorwork. At the end of the workshop, you will have a motif swatch and the confidence to tackle a larger double-knitting pattern.
Skill Level: Intermediate
This is an advanced technique, but you need only be comfortable with the long-tail cast-on and basic knit and purl stitches to join this class. Previous experience with colorwork is also helpful but not required. Date and Time: Saturday, 7/14; 2:00pm - 5:00pm Materials required: 2 contrasting colors of plain yarn in the DK to worsted weight range; A pair of straight or circular needles in the size appropriate for the yarn
