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 labor-intensive but a wholly worthwhile technique to have in your repertoire.

You’ll 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, you should have a motif swatch and be confident that you can tackle larger standard double-knitting patterns.

Special skills or knowledge needed to take this class:
To take this class, you must be able to cast on and knit and purl comfortably in single-layer knitting. If you are familiar with the long-tail CO and some other form of two-color work, you will have a leg up but these are not strictly necessary.
