Double-knitting Entrelac with Alasdair Post-Quinn
Are you a double-knitter itching for a technique extravaganza? Do you love the basket-weave look of entrelac knitting but dislike the unattractive wrong side? As I developed the techniques for double-knit entrelac to include in my book Double or Nothing, I discovered that the two techniques are surprisingly compatible and fun to combine. Learn double-knit invisible short-rows, increases, decreases, picked-up stitches – and combine it all to make a double-knit entrelac swatch. You can modify most entrelac patterns to make them completely reversible with these techniques. 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.
__2 solid colors (one light, one darker) of plain yarn in the DK to worsted weight range and a pair of straight or circular needles in the size you would normally use for your chosen yarn.
__Knitting Basics including sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles and crochet hooks of various sizes.
You should be comfortable with modern (two colors at once) double-knitting from recent experience. You should also be comfortable with single-layer entrelac and short rows.
