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.
Note: Previous double-knitting experience required. (You should either have taken Alasdair's Introduction to Double-Knitting workshop in person or on Craftsy, or have done some other standard (not slip-stitch) double-knitting colorwork on your own or in another workshop. You should also be comfortable with standard knitted entrelac.
