Class Title: Multi-Color Double Knitting

Instructor: Alasdair Post-Quinn

Objective: To take your existing knowledge of double-knitting techniques and push its limits by adding more colors.

Class Description: Bored with only two colors in your double-knitting? Add a third – or a fourth! With more than two colors per row in double-knitting, the rules change a bit – learn how to choose a color rotation and maintain it throughout a three-color pattern. In this workshop, you’ll get to play with three-color single-pattern as well as two-pattern double-knitting – and open new doors to design possibilities that were previously impossible (or at least improbable). You’ll also learn how to integrate the third color into a foolproof double-knit selvedge, and a bind-off that mirrors the cast-on.

Overall Skill Category: Previous double-knitting experience required -- you should either have taken Alasdair’s Introduction to Double-Knitting workshop in person or on Craftsy, or have done some other double-knitting colorwork on your own or in another workshop. You should also have some basic familiarity with knitting charts.

Materials fee: none

Supplies to Bring to Class:

·         3 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: If you’re not already familiar with my cast-on, please learn it before the workshop so we can move right into new techniques. The cast-on we'll be doing is subtly different from the one currently online but it's best if you have a solid foundation. You can find a video tutorial on Youtube at http://double-knitting.com/caston-video. Also, please bring a sample or photo of your previous double-knitting work, if handy.

Class Size: Limit of 24
