Texture in Double-knitting with Alasdair Post-Quinn
Do you love the reversible fabric of double-knitting but want something more than endless stockinette? Not quite ready for double-knit cables or lace? Add some intrigue with double-knit textures! Add purls to your reversible repertoire to expand the possibilities available to you. In a small swatch, you'll learn a few interesting ways to add texture to your double-knitting and the pros and cons of each. As with most of my other workshops, you’ll also learn a really clean double-knit selvedge and a bind-off that mirrors the cast-on.
Note: Previous double-knitting experience is required. (You should have taken Alasdair's Introduction to Double Knitting or have done some other standard [not slip stitch] double-knitting colorwork on your own or in another workshop.)
