Learn how to integrate a third color into your reversible double-knit colorwork.
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. 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.
