Class Title: Introduction to Double Knitting

Instructor: Alasdair Post-Quinn

Objective: To learn double-knitting and reversible colorwork techniques.

Class Description: 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 my 2-color cast-on for double-knitting, get comfortable with the techniques involved, then move into colorwork. At the end of the workshop, you should have a motif swatch and be confident that you can tackle a larger standard double-knitting pattern.

Overall Skill Category: This is an advanced technique, but you need only be comfortable with the long-tail cast-on and basic knit and purl; previous experience with colorwork is also helpful but not necessary.

Materials fee: none

Supplies to Bring to Class:

·         2 highly-contrasting colors of plain yarn in the DK to worsted weight range

·         A pair of straight or circular needles in the proper size

Pre-Class Assignment: none

Class Size: Limit of 24
