Description

So you’ve learned to love the reversible magic that is double-knitting, and perhaps you want to make a gift with a unique personal touch. If you chart out the name of that special someone, when you double-knit it, the opposite layer is all in mirror- image letters! With planning and a little bending of the rules, you can avoid this.

In this workshop you’ll learn how to build, follow, and knit a two-pattern double-knit chart so that you can make letters readable on either side – or even make two completely different patterns! You’ll gain a deeper understanding of the structure of double-knit fabric and learn the possibilities (and limitations) of two-pattern double-knitting—along with a very clean double-knit selvedge and a bind-off that mirrors the cast-on.

Special skills or knowledge needed to take this class:
You should be comfortable with modern (two colors at once) double-knitting from recent experience. The homework will help to refresh you if you are rusty. You should also be comfortable following knitting charts.
