Multi-color Double-knitting with Alasdair Post-Quinn
Bored with only two colors in your double-knitting? Add a third – or a fourth! With more than two colors per row in double-knitting, the rules change a bit – learn how to choose a color rotation and maintain it throughout a three-color pattern. In this workshop, you’ll get to play with three-color single-pattern as well as two-pattern double-knitting – and open new doors to design possibilities that were previously impossible (or at least improbable). You’ll also learn how to integrate the third color into a foolproof double-knit selvedge, and a bind-off that mirrors the cast-on.
