Double-knitting Intarsia with Alasdair Post-Quinn
Have you been wanting to add more color to your double-knitting, but feeling like you don't have enough hands when doing multi-color double-knitting?

With double-knit intarsia, you can work with a theoretically unlimited number of colors without changing the thickness or flexibility of the double-knit fabric - and you only need to deal with two strands at a time. In addition, all those unattractive intarsia twists are completely hidden inside the work.

Learn to combine double-knitting colorwork and intarsia to add an exciting twist to your creative repertoire. 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 intarsia.


Supplies
__ Classic, DK- to worsted-weight, solid-color yarn in 4 distinct colors (2 light, 2 darker)
__Straight or circular needles in the appropriate size

Homework
If you’re not already familiar with my cast-on, please learn it before the workshop so we can move right into new techniques. You can find a video tutorial on Youtube at http://double-knitting.com/caston-video. Also, please bring a sample or photo of your previous double-knitting work, if handy.
