This workshop will get you comfortable with some of the most useful and interesting multi-color “extreme” double-knitting techniques that Alasdair has developed. In a single swatch, you’ll learn three-color double-knitting and three-color cables. You’ll also learn how to integrate multiple colors into a really clean double-knit edge and work a very interesting decorative bind-off.
Skill Level: Advanced
Pre-requisite: Previous double-knitting experience required -- you should either have taken Alasdair’s Introduction to Double-Knitting workshop or have done some other double-knitting colorwork on your own or in another workshop.
Date and Time: Sunday, 7/15; 11:00am - 3:00pm
Materials Required: 3 contrasting colors of plain yarn in the sport to DK weight range and a pair of straight or circular needles in the appropriate size.
Homework: If you’re not already familiar with Alasdair's cast-on, please learn it before the workshop so that you can move right into new techniques. You can find a video tutorial here.
