Do you love the reversible fabric of double-knitting but want something more than endless stockinette? Not quite ready for double-knit cables or lace? Add some intrigue with double-knit textures! Add purls to your reversible repertoire to expand the possibilities available to you. In a small swatch, you’ll learn a few interesting ways to add texture to your double-knitting, and the pros and cons of each. 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.
Class is Sunday, July 25, 2021 at 3:15PM EST.
- Two solid colors (one light, one darker) of plain yarn in the DK to worsted weight range
- A pair of straight or circular needles in the size you would normally use for your chosen yarn.
There is homework for this class. Homework will be sent in an email along with class handouts.
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.
