Instructor: Alasdair Post-Quinn

Have you been wanting to add more color to your double-knitting, but feel like you don’t have enough hands when doing multi-color double-knitting? With double-knit intarsia, you can work with a theoretically unlimited number of colors without changing the thickness or flexibility of the double-knit fabric – and you only need to deal with two strands at a time. In addition, all those unattractive intarsia twists are completely hidden inside the work. Learn to combine double-knitting colorwork and intarsia to add an exciting twist to your creative repertoire. As with most of my other workshops, you’ll also learn a really clean double-knit selvedge and a bind-off that mirrors the cast-on.
