Basic Double Knitting Techniques with Sarah Peasley
Double knitting is pure magic. Using one method, a piece worked back and forth opens up as if it had been knit in the round. Using another method, the image created on the front of the fabric will appear in reverse image on the back. Learn both methods to create a small bag and a two-sided coaster while practicing appropriate cast-on, bind-off, and chart-reading techniques.
For bag, 25 grams of sport, DK or worsted-weight yarn; for coaster, 25 grams in main color and 25 grams in contrasting color of sport, DK or worsted-weight yarn (both colors need to be the same weight); double-pointed needles in size to match yarn; blunt darning needle; coilless safety pin; size 3.75 mm or 4mm/ US F or G crochet hook.
