Double Knitting Intro w/ Alasdair Post-Quin



We are going to start with his Beginner Workshop in the morning and continue on with two-pattern  in the afternoon - register for one or both .....  come and enjoy the day!

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 a labor-intensive but wholly worthwhile technique to have in your repertoire. In this workshop, you’ll learn my 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 a larger standard double-knitting pattern.

What to bring: 2 solid colors (one light, one darker) of plain yarn in the DK to worsted weight range and a pair of straight or circular needles in the size you would normally use for your chosen yarn, of course we have plenty here in the shop for you to choose from as well! 

What to know: 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.

What to do: There is no homework for this workshop!
