Introduction to Double-Knitting, section 1 with Alasdair Post-Quinn


This is Section One. See Section Two HERE.  Choose only one section.

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, students will 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, knitters should have a motif swatch and be confident that they can tackle a larger standard double-knitting pattern.
