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.
What to know: You should be comfortable with modern (two colors at once) double-knitting from recent experience. The homework below will help to refresh you if you are rusty. You should also be comfortable following knitting charts.
__3 colors of classic DK or worsted (#3 or #4)yarn, 2 contrasting and 1 accent
__Knitting needles in appropriate size for your yarn choice (straight or circular)
__Knitting Basics: Sharp scissors, Notebook, Pen or pencil with eraser, Stitch markers, Tapestry needles (large and small), Tape measure, Small calculator, Needles and crochet hooks of various sizes
