Introduction to Double-knitting with Alasdair Post-Quinn
Double-knitting is a unique method of making a fabric with no 'wrong' side and a built-in capacity for reversible colorwork pattern. Significantly different from the standard intarsia and Fair Isle colorwork, double-knitting is a labor-intensive but wholly worthwhile technique to have in your repertoire.
In this workshop you'll learn Alasdair's 2-color cast-on for double-knitting, get comfortable with the techniques involved, then move into colorwork. By the end of the workshop you should have completed a motif swatch and be confident that you can tackle a larger standard double-knitting pattern.

2 contrasting colors of plain yarn in the DK to worsted weight range and a pair of straight or circular needles in the proper size for your yarn.
