Double Knitting DVD
Essential Techniques to Knit Two Layers at a Time
Join knitwear designer and instructor Annie Modesitt on this Interweave Knits workshop video: Double Knitting.
Most commonly considered the act of using two sets of needles to produce double-thick knitted fabric when stitches are joined, double knitting can also be achieved by knitting two pieces on one set of needles simultaneously. With Annie’s help, knitters of all skill levels can learn various types of double knitting with step-by-step instructions and visuals.
A variety of methods for casting on and binding off, how to "read" your stitches for ease of double knitting, and tips for avoiding gutters during color changing.
Modifications for using colorwork to produce stockinette-stitch reversible patterns.
How to create flaps, pockets, and tubes using double knitting techniques.
Plus, you'll learn an exquisite slip-stitch edging and corrugated ribbing technique!
Double-knitting techniques can enhance your knitting to add interesting details, as well as create thick, warm fabric.
