Two-Color Double Knitting with Melissa Leapman
With this fascinating knitting technique, both sides of the knitting appear to be stockinette stitch. In just a few fun hours, learn how to knit and design these beautiful reversible fabrics.
Homework swatches with yarn attached and needles used; a few balls of contrasting brightly-colored (but solid) worsted weight yarn that is darker than your homework yarn; sticky notes (such as Post It Notes); 4mm/US 6 circular needle or 2 dpns.
Optional: graph paper, 5-squares-to-the-inch; pencil.
Start 3 swatches with smooth, solid, light-colored, #4 (worsted-weight) yarn and 4mm/US 6 needles as follows:
Swatch 1: Cast on 28 sts. Slip sts onto holder.
Swatch 2: Cast on 20 sts. Slip sts onto holder.
Swatch 3: Cast on 24 sts. Slip sts onto holder.
Note: Yes, the homework is just to cast on the stitches. You have read correctly and nothing is missing.
