CC2 Intermediate Double Knit in Color
Double knitting in color creates a two-sided, double-thick fabric with an image on one side and the exact negative of the image on the other side. In class, we will learn the basic steps and get started on a coaster-sized sample with a simple motif. This will require concentration and experience in reading patterns and instructions comfortably.
Materials: 50 yards of smooth, plain #4 (worsted-weight) yarn in two STRONGLY contrasting solid colorsâ€”wool or wool-blend preferred and US 7 needle.
